UNLV Special Collections
UNLV Special Collections information
Lots of memorabilia gets cast off in this ahistorical town. Thankfully, some of it ends up here, where it’s closely guarded and housed by the university. The Lied Library holds a pit boss’ ransom of books, photos, maps, posters, manuscripts and much more from the city’s early, hurly-burly days. The best way to pay a visit, though, is from the comfort of your own hotel room: online exhibits are free. While you’re online, also visit the virtual museum of the UNLV’s Center for Gaming Research for a photographic survey of neon on the Strip, a World Series of Poker retrospective, Rat Pack memorabilia and more.
