      The museum is home to a collection of historic houses and buildings relocated here from their original locations around the ever-changing Las Vegas valley. Known as "Heritage Street," the preserved buildings offer a glimpse into what life was like in different eras of our city's past. Some of the highlights include The Candlelight Wedding Chapel, The Boulder City Train Depot, and the Donald Reynolds Printshop. The museum also home to the Anna Roberts Parks Exhibit Hall where visitors can find exhibits and recreations detailing the history of Clark County from the Ice Age to the early days of the Strip. During the Christmas holidays, each of the houses is decorated in the manner they would have been in the decade that the house represents. The museum opens its doors one night so museum goers can see those magical decorations in the dark. Mark Hall Patton, one of the featured guests of the TV show "Pawn Stars" is the museum director and and fans of the show go to the museum hoping to run into him. There is a large cut-out of the director for those fans wishing to capture a photo with him and them!
