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.

James Hogg
James Hogg's collecting interests began with coins as he grew up in Farnham, England. His training in Hotels and Butlering, as well as his American wife, brought him to Las Vegas in 2003 where he began working at the MGM Grand. A $5 chip received as a tip was the start of a new collection and a hobby that he still enjoys today.

Hogg is currently a professional butler, and through his employment has gained experience in running and funding museums. He is a member of the Casino Collectibles Association, a Gold Member of the MoGH, and was recently an officer of the SNCCC (the Las Vegas local chip collectors club).
