Clark County Heritage Museum

Let's play a game called "Quaint or Creepy?"

This is where I post pictures of something that I must categorize as either quaint or as creepy. It's October so I think this is appropriate. I went to the Clark County Heritage Museum today for the first time. I am going to give it a Muppet Rating, but first the important part: Quaint or Creepy?

Very creepy. I wasn't expecting to see that in there.


Quaint. A sweet shop!

Baby creepy.

Creepy...oh, wait, she's real. Yeah ok, still creepy because she was standing as still as the manequins.


  And, I saved the best for last. UBER CREEPY:

Is he missing a finger?? And what is that fabric hanging off what appears to have formerly been his index finger? When he turns and fixes his gaze on you, that is Halloween creepy right there.This was the only manequin that I saw moving so it was entirely unexpected. Considering all the available creepiness, it is a shame they aren't having their Ghosts and Goblins of Nevada's Past event this year for Halloween.

Ok, now that I have had my fun, here is my review.

For younger kids (ages 1-5 range) the running around is fun - there is lots of space for them. But the place itself is not going to be very interesting to them. At the end of our exploration Ivy asked me where "the kids stuff is". I guess she was a little disappointed. But there are nice picnic areas to have lunch in, and as long as the weather cooperates it is a nice outing. Cheap, too. Only $1 for kids and $2 for adults. Groups get a discount. I paid 50 cents per.

For the older kids who might be able to understand more about the history, it will probably be a little more interesting, especially the print shop and the ghost town area. All things considered, including creep-factor and the fact that most of the history doesn't go much farther back than the 1920's, I give the museum:
