  • The museum is SMALL however the quality of the Artifacts is amazing . This is the ONLY place in NEVADA in which you can see a REAL HUMAN SHRUNKEN HEAD . The Wilbur collection is interesting from Animals to guns to artifacts to different kind of weapons . Worth my time and trip there . The Wilbur is a PERMANENT Exhibit then in other rooms they have traveling exhibits. Now they are having a " Hero Theme " and I must say...I am not a kid , I don't have kids but I had so much fun!
  • Not a huge museum, but good quality exhibits. The park outside the museum is always fun for kids.
  • Great museum. I especially enjoyed the Sherlock exhibit, if you have the time, it's defintely worth checking out. Even if you only get to see the museum.
  • Beautiful garden in Reno Nevada! Love going here to photograph insects and flowers! Wish there where more gardens like this in city.
  • Awrsome! I take ALL my out of town visitors there and visit all the changing exhibits.
