Great family fun. Lots of exhibits with a local flair. Great gift shop and easy to find location. Good way to spend time with your family. The building can also be used for special events.

The Northeastern Nevada Museum is a true gem in the state of Nevada and should definitely become an accredited Museum. The ground floor has three major parts. The first is historical - a history of settlement in the area, the Indians, Basques, lifestyle, etc. The second is a fascinating taxidermy display of animals from all over the world. The actually...

Well worth the stop for a history of the west and mining. Interesting collections of art and stuffed animals.

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.
