This "museum" is in the Celebrity Hotel, but is it not a museum at all. There is one small room with Herbie, Bumblebee, and the motorcycle. There are also some enclosures throughout the casino with memorabllia from movies, mainly clothing but also the Matrix from Transformers and the small Decepticon. It is free, but it is also in the casino,... More

Okay, this place was FREE and did have a Herbie Bug. But other than that, it was very small, and most of the displays weren't interesting. It's good for about ten minutes of entertainment. Maybe.

In the back of the casino is cars from movies to look at. Also, around the walls is different celebrity costumes.

A few pieces of memorabilia in a hotel casino. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there but if you're walking by it might be worth a look.

Celebrity Casino/Hotel hosts the Nelson's Garage Car & Motorcycle Museum. Stop in and see all the famous outfits movie stars wore in their hit movies. Free! Ken, the manager at the Celebrity, is a great, friendly person as are the other people who work here. They are one of the few places in Deadwood who have a lot of Keno... More

Look closely at this photo, because you have just seen about 90% of the attractions here. Ever seen the movie "USED CARS"? This is where they got all of the beauties that were the carstars of that movie. Where else can you see a genuine $50 VW Bug roped off for YOUR protection? Actually pretty typical of what Deadwood has... More
