For $5 adult its worth many times more. An extensive collection of firearms, taxidermy which IMO rivals many national displays, and of course items and history pertaining to the original western travelers and settlers.

One side had display of every kind of local animal...(the taxidermy variety) very impressive!! The other side had several displays including an old fashion print shop, including a Linotype machine and a Patton press. Other displays included items back... More

Fun little museum. My kids loved seeing all the old weapons and the stuffed animals. DH and I enjoyed reading the history of the town. It was a nice two hour outing and it fit nicely with the homeschool lesson the kids and I had been studying.

I forget the name of the sheriff who's guns were donated but they are impressive. So many different makes and models! I could have spent hours just pouring over the gun displays. The Newmont mining displays were very informative as were the other displays on that side of the museum. The other side was almost all taxidermied animals. The cool... More

Don't miss a stop off route 80 in Elko, Nevada to see this museum. It is really worth the time. Great display of old west pistols and rifles, stuffed wildlife, and original artwork on the 2nd floor. Plus lots of other displays.

The most obvious part of the museum is the taxidermy collection but if you turn left on entering, the history sections has excellent displays about several very interesting historical characters.

If you get past the sim fluorescent lighting, you'll find that this museum is packed full with interesting and unique things! It houses one of the largest collections of taxidermied mammals that I know of. There's plenty to learn about mining and Northern Nevada, as well as a great gallery area upstairs where the frequently display the work of local... More

It's a great museum about Northeastern Nevada. The exhibits are very well done and a lot of information. It's $5 for adults and well worth it.
