The Clark County Museum

Hi all, thanks for stopping by. I drove to Henderson this morning to get some photos of this museum. I’ve never visited this place until today and I should say that the museum in terms of photography was terrible indoors! It’s rather dark inside but also very interesting. I spent about thirty minutes walking through the exhibits.

Outside was a different story of course in terms of the lighting. I have a great photoset of a steam engine coming up. The rest of the museum is outdoors and has original buildings and homes that were moved to this location long ago for the museum and have their own street. The cost to enter the museum is dirt cheap.

Just one dollar for me since I am 55+! Younger folk are just two bucks, big deal right? My final thoughts on my short visit – it was a 25+ mile drive one way and overall I must say that I was a bit disappointed with the museum both in terms of it’s location (really far from the Strip) and it’s total content. It just seems to need more items.

The main Adobe building that contains so much of Nevada history is clean, well maintained and staffed by very friendly and knowledgeable people.

By the way, once again, the damned SD card in my Nikon was telling me that it was Full. Ummm, no. It couldn’t have been more than a tiny bit full as it was empty when I left home. Strike Two, that SD card is going in the trash. Hence, I lost a few photo opportunities. Thanks so much, you cheap ass SD card!
