    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 games inside a very clean garbage truck within a rammed-earth house. For me, the unlv desert solar house was the star attraction.

    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.

    Always a relaxing and educational time, no matter how many times I visit 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 left the $12 salad on the plate. I hope the other menu items are better, but I don’t think we’ll be going back.
