  • I enjoyed the museum so much that I donated some military uniforms. The atomic bomb display was impressive.  more »
  • Volunteers run the museum so its very self-directed. Gives a good perspective on local history and regional issues. Worth the visit to learn about the Pahrump Valley and Nye County area.  more »
  • As you might expect a good overview of the history of the area, with many, many exhibits and artifacts. Definitely worth your time.  more »

  • Enjoyable, small, local museum. Can easily spend an hour if you include visiting all of the historic buildings on the grounds. They have an interesting exhibit on the NV Test Site, which was definitely not impartial, but it was really well done. They also had a section on ham radios, with a working radio setup, which is a fun nontraditional way to use the museum space! They are currently finishing work on an exhibit related to the railroad, which looks like it will be great! Visiting the historic buildings, particularly the school and homes, was a highlight. Admission is free, but donations will definitely help them further enhance the experience.
  • We stopped in one day while visiting Death Valley. They have a large amount of local history and artifacts. I especially liked the railroad exhibit. One thing that floored me was to learn electricity was only available in 1962. It’s a fairly large community now so I guess farmers and businesses only had generators prior to that. We’ll likely not be back but wanted to support the effort so became members. A very nice lady was running it.
  • Lovely museum in the middle of nowhere. Really interesting stuff and lovely people running the place.
  • Incredible Museum fantastic staff super interesting history of the Pahrump Valley in the surrounding areas. Marilyn is awesome
  • I enjoy bringing friends here. Great place to purchase gems, too!
