Nevada Gambling Museum

This museum was being set up when I visited. There were a few displays and lots of boxes. Some old slot machines were displayed in cubby holes in the wall close to the ceiling. There was an odd old clock with 32 numbers, but the significance of this was unclear to me.

Gambling Museum

The Gambling Museum is a fitting shrine to a pastime that has kept Nevada alive. Enough slots, tables and roulette wheels to fill a small casino crammed into a dusty little building the size of a five and dime.
