Mission :

 The City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Rider Memorial Collection engages visitors in the rich history of the Las Vegas area by collecting, preserving, and presenting objects and themes relating to the region’s unique heritage, to increase our understanding of the link between the past, present and future.

The City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Rider Memorial Collection illustrates the history of Las Vegas, its connection to the Rough Riders, the Santa Fe Trail and the development of New Mexico. The Museum is housed in a 1940 Works Progress Administration funded building. Originally constructed as a municipal building, the structure is a venerable stone building with Pueblo Revival elements.

Our collections include local Native American pottery, household items, costumes, Rough Rider memorabilia and ranching and farming equipment. The exhibit halls interpret agricultural and mercantile operations, home life, the Santa Fe Trail and the 1st Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, better known as the Rough Riders.
