Where To Find All The Snow Globes In Fallout New Vegas
Where To Find All The Snowglobes In Fallout New Vegas

Snowglobes are a collectible item that you can give to Jane, a securitron located in the Lucky 38, for 2000 caps each. Turning them in will also add them to the stand located in the Lucky 38 Presidential suite. This guide will only focus on the snowglobes in the base game.

Here are a couple of quick tips before you go off to collect the snowglobes:

  • 7 snowglobes in the base game. There are a total of 7 snowglobes located in the Mojave wasteland, with one more in each DLC.
  • Some are in quest-locked locations. Some of the snowglobes, most notably the ones in the Nellis Air Force Base and The Strip, are locked behind certain quests or behind faction reputation. 
  • Progressing too far can make it impossible to hand them in. If you progress too far in the NCR, Legion, or Yes Man storylines, you will lose the ability to hand the snowglobes in. 

Goodsprings

To get the Goodsprings snow globe, travel to the Goodsprings cemetery, located North of Goodsprings, just up the dirt path from the Prospector’s Saloon.

The Strip

This snowglobe is by far the most difficult to get, as it involves doing one of 3 things:

  • Finishing the “Suits You, Sarah” unmarked quest. This is done by giving Sarah Weintraub, located in Vault 21, 30 vault jumpsuits.
  • Pickpocketing a Passcard from Sarah Weintraub.
  • Lockpicking an average-locked door (Lockpick skill of 50 or more required).

Make your way to the southernmost part of the Strip, where the NCR Embassy and the Vault 21 Gift Shop are located.

The Vault 21 Gift Shop is a small building with a glass door with a glowing “Vault 21” sign. Go inside.

You’ll find yourself inside the gift shop. Here, you can speak to Sarah Weintraub to give her the vault suits to gain access to the suite, or you can pickpocket the passcard to her room from her inventory.

To do this, go through the door at the back of the gift shop.
