The museum is small and unassuming, but contains many artifacts that give a sense of Nevada history and mining life. Admission was free. I enjoyed seeing the antique slot machine. Local tourist pamphlets are available, and the attendant was very helpful in answering questions. It's a bit tight inside and if you are using a wheelchair or walker you might... More

What a fun and interesting little museum this turned out to be. The assistant curator was very helpful in answering questions and the exhibits nicely tell the story of Beatty's beginnings and more recent history. Admission is free. A fun and educational stop for kids and adults.

This is a quirky little museum which is worth a visit although the opening hours are limited. If you are in the Death Valley area it is worth popping in.

This museum seems to have anything that was ever used in the history of the town - tools, books, dolls, kitchenware, photos, you name it. Many have very helpful descriptions. There is a side room with stuffed wildlife, old service uniforms and more things than is possible to mention. It's free and also had many helpful maps and brochures of... More
