    VERY GOOD, lots of history, great videos & explanation throughout. Snack bar, drinks, coffee, beer, popcorn, etc. Suggest at least 3 hrs. Discount for Vegas locals. WELL WORTH IT!!

    At first I thought the cost was a bit high, about 25.00 per adult. However, there is so much to see! Worth the money. Great photos, artifacts and videos throughout.
