  • Quirky collection of local history. Mining technology. Minerals. Lifestyles of the boom times of Virginia City. The collection of incredibly ornate and french dressed dolls alone is worth admission. One problem... no restrooms on site. Got to the saloon down the street.
  • For being only $3 to get in this is a great museum. Tons of cool stuff.
  • Great for the kids, very educational video featuring Mark Twain trivia.
  • Pretty cool museum as an adult . Get your ticket at the visitor center for a discount.
  • Excellent up date viedo
