The Southern Nevada Museum opened in 1968 thanks to a collection of Indigenous Southwestern artifacts collected by Anna Roberts Parks, Las Vegas’ first female mortician (interesting story in the Review Journal). It was renamed the Clark County Museum.

Exhibit Hall – 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.
