The Clark County Museum will celebrate the holiday season with its free annual Heritage Holidays event from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday, Dec. 11 at the museum, located at 1830 S. Boulder Highway in Henderson.
From Nov. 29 through Jan. 10, the houses and buildings on Heritage Street, composed of historic homes from around Southern Nevada, will be donned in holiday apparel and ready for self-guided tours during regular business hours, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week. Daylight tours require daily museum admission, which is $2 for adults, $1 for children.
The museum is closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
In its tenth year, the Heritage Holidays event is the only time the public can visit Heritage Street at night to see the museum's unique collection of houses lit up for the holidays. The two-night festival includes holiday music and strolling carolers from Green Valley High School's acclaimed Madrigals choir, a craft tent provided by the Discovery Children’s Museum where children can make holiday decorations, visits with Santa, and plenty of hot cocoa and cookies courtesy of the Clark County Museum Guild.
