    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.

    Great overview of Nevada history. Staff is knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. Great exhibits for kids as well as adults. Mine is interesting.

    This place has something for everybody. They are quality exhibits. You can get lost in there. One of the best museums I've been to.

    Lots of great exhibits. You could spend an entire day there. It is family friendly. Don't miss the mine exhibit.
