Remembering 1 October Collection

Did you leave items at the 1 October memorials at the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign or the median strip of Las Vegas Boulevard at Reno Avenue? Clark County Museum wants to hear from you. We would like to collect the stories behind the memorial items so that we can record and preserve the community's reaction to this tragic event. Please follow this link to share your story:

The Remembering 1 October Collection at the Clark County Museum is made up of over 22,000 artifacts that help to tell the story of how the community reacted to the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The artifacts have been cataloged to record information such as physical descriptions, dimensions, and conditions. Each artifact was also photographed or scanned for identification purposes.  You may now search this collection and view the photographs and records here.

The Anna Robert Parks Exhibit Hall takes the museum visitors through a historical journey from the Ice Age to Age of Entertainment.  The timeline chronicles the history and culture of the ancient Pueblo and more recent Paiute, the first Anglo pioneers and their daily lives, early town-sites and land auction camps, mining technology and the gaming and entertainment heritage of Las Vegas.  The Heritage Gallery changing exhibits feature art and artifacts in their historical context.  Heritage Street homes offer doorways into past decades, from the 1910s to the 1970s.  The Boulder City depot and collection of railroad cars recall the railroad heritage of southern Nevada, while the arrested decay along the Ghost Town and Mining Trail offers a perspective on life in the hot and arid Southwest environment.
