Where are we going today?

The Las Vegas valley has an amazing history, from the tribes that lived on these lands thousands of years ago, to the nature that has formed and changed over the years. Springs Preserve is an incredible place for kids to come and really learn through play, as well as enjoy live animal shows, beautiful botanical gardens and trails to play and hike along!

The Origen Museum at Springs Preserve is definitely the focal point for the history. It features more than 75 permanent exhibitions, as well as a traveling exhibit space and an indoor theater - how cool is that!?

The kids can wander and explore the galleries which all connect. They can experience historical recreations, and the very cool live animal exhibits! They can also learn about the history of the area: the cultures and the people. They can immerse themselves in the history of the Native American Settlements, and the Mojave tribes.

If you love seeing those beautifully colored winged creatures out in the garden, the you will love the seasonal Butterfly Habitat. Closed through winter, this fun exhibit lets kids experience the free-flying butterflies, as well as the plants that sustain them.

Want to teach your kids more about sustainability? At the core of the Desert Living Center you will find the NV Energy Foundation Sustainability Gallery. This is a place where kids can really learn about an eco-friendly world through fun interactive exhibits. There is a fun children's play area, and even an entire house full of sustainable decor and appliances - pretty awesome!

Don't forget the Nevada State Museum, a uniqe part of the Springs Preserve experience. Ready to face a woolly mammoth!?

A fascianting learning experience for kids, and lots of fun!

    This review the gardens and the ecological exhibits, not the State Museum. OK, it gets hot here but the car park has a misting system so you don't experience oven conditions on departure. Tip: come early and wear a sun hat or you will want to lie down on top of your vehicle and enjoy the misting. For me this was a zero $ not a $$ experience. Just ask for gardens only tickets. The garden includes the desert living and unlv desert solar house but not the butterfly habitat. The gardens are nice. You'll enjoy the air conditioning as you play recycling...Read More

    Fun for the whole family. The entire price includes everything but the train ride around the preserve. Cheaper than taking a group to a movie and a lot more fun. Way more bang for the buck and it's educational! But in a very fun sneaky sort of way that the kids won't know it until it's too late MUAWHAHAHA!

    The exhibits are amusing the first few times. We decided to get a membership because there always seems to be something going on but you still have to pay out of pocket for many things, from the seasonal events, to the butterfly habitat and the tours. If membership included the fun things, it'd be worth the annual purchase. Getting into the museums for free for a year just isn't worth it.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the Springs Preserve. It is such a great place to come with my young kids. I was just really disappointed with the cafe. The spinach salad left much to be desired. The dressing was just greasy and absolutely disgusting, the steak was not fresh, and the there was only a sprinkling of some pre-tossed onions and mushrooms to give the salad any character. Completely tasteless although I've been having regrettable memories of the dressing all day if you get my drift. I ended up eating the crust of my son's PB&J, and...Read More

The garden includes the desert living and unlv desert solar house but not the butterfly habitat. The gardens are nice. You'll enjoy the air conditioning as you play recycling games inside a very clean garbage truck within a rammed-earth house. For me, the unlv desert solar house was the star attraction.

I hope the other menu items are better, but I don't think we'll be going back.
