After watching the Pawn Stars popular TV series, many people who visit Las Vegas go to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop out of curiosity, or just to see the “stars”… but the question is:
Are the Pawn Stars real?
What I can tell you is that the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas IS real, and it’s quite a busy place. I can say this because I went to see it myself like many others :)
It is located in Downtown Las Vegas, more precisely: 713 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, not to far from the Stratosphere tower – in fact you can even see the tower from the shop.
People go and take pictures of themselves in front of the shop all the day long, 7 days a week – yes, they are open.

But not only – This is a photo of Rick Harrison, the owner of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop Las Vegas as it is displayed inside the shop.
In fact, there is a whole section in the back of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop dedicated to the Pawn Stars TV show.
Here you can buy related T-shirts, books, videos; even the Gold & Silver Pawn Magic Expert MURRAY Magic Kit
What else you can see at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas
Gold and Silver of course :)
As a matter of fact, the gold and silver (mainly jewelry) makes up the largest section of the shop. But there many other interesting things to see and buy, like fine art and music items, antique guns, even war memorabilia.
Unfortunately I cannot answer the question whether or not the Pawn Stars are for real… you may need to come to Las Vegas and check this out for yourself – who knows, you may just get the answer :)
