OMG, amazing

We visited this Museum because the California Trail Museum was closed, and were so glad that we did. It has the most amazing display of African Animals, and other interesting displays.

AMAZING!

Incredible historical artifacts. The animal display was unbelievable! We were especially interested in the mastadon display. The curators, Lisa and Eve, were most friendly and very knowledgeable.

So glad we had time to spend here.

We spent at least two hours viewing the varied collections and special showing of Black Cowboy photos, etc. relating to the theme of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Surprised to meet up with Jim Brooks & his wife. Found we had ND connection. What a great history of ranching & cowboying he had in his life.
The International wildlife collection provided mainly by the Wanamakers was fascinating.
Definitely worth visiting and spending time at this wonderful facility. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly docents as well.

Very Worthwhile

An excellent, varied, well maintained museum of the human and natural history of the region. Some special exhibits for the Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Definitely worth at least a 45 minute visit.

Strange Museum that deserves a look
Sep 2019
We had a few minutes to kill until our room was ready at the Red Lion so we ventured in here. I'd divide this museum into three distinct parts: the dead animal part, the art part and the history and artifacts of the area part.
The dead animal part is totally out of place but, apparently, the main donor wanted to display all of the animals he killed - and not just area animals but a lot of stuff from his safaris.
Ok, that out of the way, the upstairs art exhibition is absolutely wonderful. Ansel Adams and Edward Weston photographs are great and some of the local photo work is great. And the cowboy art is great.
The main exhibit of the area is also very good. Lots of info on the mining industry. This part is worth a half hour on its own.
Very Good museum.

Nice quick to see Museum with local and natural history
Nov 2019
This was a nice stop on the way to the Elko airport. One side has throphy animals in a wildlife display. There were some nice photographic works from Ansel Adams, that were not all of western scenery. The other side the history of man, from the original inhabitants, through the development of infrastructure and industry, up to modern times.

This museum is chockful of history, folklore, art, and wildlife exhibits. It is very well laid out and very interesting. Children will find the wildlife exhibits very entertaining. Easy to get to, parking on premises, park next door, food close, price is right. Be sure to stop here.
