      The Lost City Museum was originally founded in the 1930s to house and protect Anasazi, or Ancestral Puebloan, artifacts found along the Muddy River from the rising waters of Lake Mead. The largest archeological digs uncovered a sprawling 95 room structure inhabited by these ancient peoples. Today the museum also has displays for early settlers and the railroad towns that sprung up along the eastern border of Nevada. Although a smaller museum, it is a must see for anyone interested in local history.

      If you go:
      Be sure to go out back to see the reconstructed ancient Puebloan village, as well as other outdoor artifacts on display. The museum is open seven days a week, and is only closed on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving, and New Year's Day. Admission is only $5 for adults and free for children under 18 years old.
