Clark County museum exhibit to honor Las Vegas shooting victims

The Clark County Museum next month will open an exhibit of artifacts used to honor the victims killed in the Route 91 Harvest festival shooting.

The county has cataloged more than 12,000 items that were used to create makeshift memorials following the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds more.

The items chosen for display include flags, stuffed animals, rosaries, signs, letters and art works that were placed at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign and at Reno Street. The exhibit, titled “How We Mourned: Selected Artifacts from the October 1 Memorials,” will run from Sept. 28 through Feb. 24.

More information on the exhibit may be obtained by calling the Clark County Museum at 702-455-7995. All artifacts cataloged to date can be viewed at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/museum.

The museum is located at 1830 S. Boulder Highway in Henderson. Admission is $1 for children and seniors and $2 for adults. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day.
