  • The Nevada State Museum is a beautiful establishment! This place has been so kind to the homeschool community and offers classes that have shown my kids the beauty of this area such as the animals that call this place home and the plant life of the area. They go into amazing detail...not sparing the information they have. I really am so thankful to them and their kindness. Every time we come we visit the ghost town and mines downstairs along with the gift shop for goodies. My son adores the rock collection they have. We grab a new rock every time we come too.
  • $8 to walk through museum. Typical museum displays with lots of reading if you want to take the time. The simulated mining shaft was interesting could be better with audio explanations rather than so much reading. Would be nice if they had more interactive displays.
  • Lots of great exhibits. You could spend an entire day there. It is family friendly. Don't miss the mine exhibit.
  • It's a strange mix of NV history mixed in w WW1, geology, and other historical artifacts. Laid out well, bright and interpretive exhibits. Its worth spending 1-2hrs
  • A very nice and informative place to visit. Staff was very nice.
