We spent about three hrs in this place and we were rushing through all the activities. There are lots of interesting things to see and do in this modern museum. The kids were very entertained as well as the adults.

We avoid the museum during cold and flu season, but any other time it is a great interactive place to take the kids for some fun. The museum has a lots of great local history that makes it fun for the parents as well.

Our group ranged from 6 to older adults. We all enjoyed it. Even chased the 6 yr old up the clouds. It was a very educational experience for the 6 yr old. Worth the time to stop and enjoy the educational experience and the little info they have of Nevada was enjoyable to learn too. The Staff was very nice.

There are many exhibits that follow early life in Nevada, mining, farming and ranching and the arrival and culture of Basque... More

We went with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons. It is very interactive for children and they had a great time. It gets a little tedious for grownups as sometimes we forget how to be young.

Our 4 year old spent an hour discovering. She liked the hands on exhibits. She learned, played, and didn't want to leave

This place has an abundance of wonderful, safe, educational interactive exhibits and equipment for children to explore! In addition, there is a kitchen/snack bar area where you can take your own lunch or dinner, store it in the refrigerators if you wish, and then enjoy when you are ready for a break in the very nice and well equipped self-serve...
