Hammargren Home of Nevada History

Costs $20 and is really creepy and strange. Takes you into his house with people living in it, etc. Nice guy, some cool stuff, but not really worth the stop.

The home is only open occasionally to the public. I went last October and it was RAD. The eccentric surgeon is a super rich hoarder of wacky stuff. Very Vegas. Very cool. You could wander the insane, added on to a million times over mansion and check out all of this man's stuff. His second wife had an amazing boudoir and one of the studies is full of prostitute themed stuff. Sick collection of random cars and odd vehicles. A NASA themed pool?

It's a shame he doesn't open to the public more often -- the tops of things are maddeningly visible over the high compound wall.
