  • It was very interesting. My 11 year old grandson really liked it. Some of it took me back to a time that I remember very well!
  • Full access through the Rear of the Building, Always amazing displays and plays an active role in holding the history and changes of Clark County near and dear to them. It's a surprise inside!
