Clark County Museum Hosts Photography Day

This event is open to the public if they want to watch or observe, but is limited to 90 “participants”. If you’re there to watch you’ll only have to pay the normal $2.00 to get into the museum grounds. If you’ve never been to the museum, it’s the best 2 bucks you can spend for a day of learning and reminiscing.
