  • We enjoyed seeing the Indian baskets, antique toys, mining exhibits!, mint exhibit, etc. Well worth our time!  more »
  • I went to this museum with my wife and friends and was greatly surprised at how good it is. There is a mock up of a real gold/silver mine, with a tunnel system and displays for about 300 feet. Very we...  more »

  • I'm a tour guide there and of course think it's great. Come see our underground mine and the historic mint. One of a kind!
  • We went on Nevada Day, which was free, not that it's that expensive. It normally $8 to get in. Interesting place, fun, cool mind and really neat mammoth skeleton found in Black Rock on 1970.
  • 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.
  • The basement display that looks and feels like an actual mine was really fun. The whole museum is interesting and educational.
  • Informative and bigger than we thought. The kids loved it.
