Admission: free This is a nice little museum packed with history about Tonopah, Goldfield, and the military activities around the area. The staff is friendly and happy to answer any and all questions you may have. There is also a library if you are planning on staying in town.

I went in and liked it was free. They had a lot of items from the mining and ranching history. Plus when I told the staff I was here to hunt ghost they told me about some haunted places and how to get to them. Overall I loved this place. Young kids may be bored though.

This is a free to enter museum at the top end of the town and is split into two parts. The indoor section has many original artefacts from the area and has a superb selection of old photographs of the town. The outdoor section contains old buildings and many old mining pieces. Well worth a visit

If you enjoy Nevada history, you will enjoy this museum with a varied collection of Central Nevada items. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in the Tonopah area. The staff is also very nice and will be happy to answer questions about the town.

Mining Museum was a surprising find. Lots of early silver and gold mining artifacts. Small mining equipment to large mining equipment outside. Very friendly docent at the museum. Lots of small arifacts going back to early 1900 and lifestyle. There was an army aviation facilty here and there is history about the WWII facility.
