Preserving History at the Clark County Museum
The first public museum in the Las Vegas Valley presents “50 Years of Preserving History: Celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the Clark County Museum.” The exhibit looks back at the history and growth of the oldest and largest museum in the area, whose collection numbers about one million artifacts; from fossils and minerals, to an automatic 21 machine which used real cards. The Clark County Museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Entry is $2 per person, except seniors (55 and older) and children (younger than 18), who are $1 each.

A Spaceship of Fools
Completely unlike the good old days in a Las Vegas showroom, where one would have a martini in hand while a pack of crooners sauntered in front of the house band, OPIUM, brought to you by the same people who created Absinthe, instead takes you on an interplanetary flight. Launching from Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, on this “starship voyage” passengers are treated to stellar performances by an irreverent crew of fools, showcasing their peculiar and particular talents - from sword swallowing and singing to feats of danger, wonder, extreme athleticism, and more.

Stargazing and Symphony
Outdoor seating under the night sky, while listening to live music, is one of the best ways to usher in the summer season before it gets too hot. The Las Vegas Philharmonic and Tivoli Village team up to bring you Symphony Under the Stars. Taking place on the Piazza at Tivoli Village, members of the orchestra will be performing for free at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 12th. Bring a chair and a blanket and gather with friends and family.
