  • Do not miss this while you are visiting Carson City. It shows the reason for the mint as well as other historical stories. Be sure to allow time to visit the coin shop across the street from the mint. 
  • All Nevada's history is fantastic. Seeing a mine in the basement is really neat for the kids. The coin and gun collections is great! 
  • Well planned and arranged museum covering all aspects of Nevada history and lore. Includes pre-history to the present. Something for everyone - history, mining/geology, natural history, minting money,...  more »

  • Cool destination, with some excellent and varied exhibits. My favorite was the underground mining portion, which was obsessively detailed and thoroughly engrossing. Check it out.
  • One of the best museums in the state. The mine section is amazing, as good as any mine tour in the region. Modern and just the right size for a morning visit, only the best is on display. If you're in the area, don't miss it!
  • This place is amazing! I love it. Their Double Eagle Collection is without parallel.
  • Great exhibits. One can get a guide if the request is made in advance.
  • Very cool museum! Great exhibits, tons of historical information!
