  • Had a great time learning the history of Vegas. Worth a trip for anyone coming to visit this town that likes history. Little does most people know that Vegas wasn't always the gambling town that it is now.

  • Took my young daughter. Was most interesting. Provided an excellent window into the local past and the people who loved here and came here. I highly recommend it.
  • Not good not bad. Neutral. It is old, history is nifty, not somewhere to spend the day. Maybe 30 minutes to stretch your legs.
  • One of my favorite casinos. Makes you feel like you're walking through a little city. Home of Zumanity!
