“An Unexpected Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

One would not know it from the look of Beatty today, but at one time it was a thriving and busy town. Inside this little museum is an eclectic collection of memorabilia of Beatty's past.The museum staff is eager to answer questions and talk about Beatty's history. Admission is free.Well worth a detour on the way to Death Valley.

“good museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

The museum has an eclectic collection. All kinds of old things, such as butter churns, old-fashioned refrigerators, farm tools, plus lots of stuff related to the mines. Many of the items have a printed page next to them describing them. I spent several hours in here looking around. Nothing really spectacular in here, but I though it well worth the time.

“Local History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

we meet a really nice young woman who was working at the museum and obviously loves the area. She spent a lot of time telling us about the history of Beatty, Rhyolite and the area.

“Nice Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

This museum really houses a lot of artifacts about the entire area. The staff is friendly and efficient and you can really tell they care a lot about their town, area, and maintaining the historical abundance in this part of our country! Well worth the time to spend there and talk with them.
