Las Vegas is a perennial frontier town forged and challenged by the confluence of diverse landscapes, cultures, and economies. Its story is a tale of travel routes, the natural environment, and the community’s dueling traits of adaptation and resistance. Exhibits at the museum illustrate this cultural heritage through the museum’s collection.
Events provide dynamic outlets for topics of historical significance and include lectures, exhibit openings, movie screenings, and musical concerts on the Museum’s historic square grand piano. Consult the Calendar for changing exhibits and event listings.
Our dedication to public education is served through curricula and activities for school children. Consult our Education Programs page for customized and special activities.
Podcasts: The Museum currently offers podcasts, available at the Museum or through this website. The podcasts accompany a visit through the galleries with additional information, or may be viewed as stand-alone presentations.
