If you are spending anytime in Elko, the Northeastern Nevada Museum is worth a stop. For $5 admission fee (less for seniors and children) you get a chance to see a lot of historical information about Nevada and the area.

Everything else good about this museum is overshadowed by the homage to a local man and his collection of slaughtered animals. They were killed not a century ago, but merely a few decades ago--when we all knew better.

We stopped here in the morning before heading on to Salt Lake City. Great gun collection, wild animals are very impressive, western paintings upstairs but the 'old' history of the area was fascinating. Everyone in the family will find something they will like.

They have a surprisingly extensive and interesting history section. We also enjoyed learning about author Will James and seeing examples of his books, letters, and drawings.

History of Northern Nevada done well. Many aspects of life in the West represented here. Local artists also represented. Well worth the time to see!
