The Museum of Gaming History is growing and we need your support. The MoGH came to life in 2014 with the showing of exhibits at the El Cortez Hotel and the Mob Museum. We are working on showing several new exhibits in the coming year. The MoGH needs your support to fund these projects. We seek to grow the hobby by expanding interest in Gaming History.

Collection Description

Expanding a Tradition
Founded by The Casino Chip & Gaming Token Collectors Club, Inc., a not-for-profit organization dedicated to gaming history since 1988, the Museum will build on an established passion for collecting artifacts.

The Role of Collections
Museum collections are an important means of advancing the mission and serving the public. They provide tangible references to exhibit and study. The Museum will acquire artifacts legally, ethically and strategically within the parameters of its Collection Policy. Effective stewardship through proper storage, management and care will ensure that the public will have access to original pieces and information for generations to come.

Uses for the Collection
The artifacts collected by the Museum will be available for research, publications, exhibitions and public programs in the facility in Las Vegas. In addition, a digital record and online database of the collection will allow visitors virtual access from around the world.

Scope of the Collection
The Museum will collect artifacts related to or representative of the history of gaming. Founding collections will be donated by Club members and consist primarily of casino chips and archival materials While Las Vegas will be an initial focus, artifacts from anywhere in the world and any time period will be considered. An endowment for ongoing acquisitions will allow the Museum to create a comprehensive research collection reflective of the following sample areas:
