Main Street Station Artifacts and Antiques

One of the lesser known free Las Vegas attractions is the Artifacts, Antiques & Artworks collection at Main Street Station. They have a collection ranging from “The Blackhawk” private rail car used by Buffalo Bill, the entry doors from the Pullman Mansion, to chandeliers from the San Francisco Opera House and the Coca-Cola Building.
