Good morning! This lovely little place is so sweet we enjoy taking our friends and guests here. Most friends ask if it’s a replica! The staff is friendly and engaging. Many folks drive up to get a view of the great mountains. Humboldt Museum is a wonderful place to visit. Do come see us! The weather is great!

We love to take our friends and family there. The Mammoth and Camel skeletons were particularly interesting, especially to the younger children. The teenage boys were in awe of the old cars and wagons. Some have gone to a lot of labor and love to make this a very nice museum.

Best of the regional museums I have visited. It is small but optimized to capture the essence of the region’s history. The curator Jerry was extraordinarily solicitous in providing an informal tour. He was knowledgeable and offered some unique insights from a Native American perspective.

This museum is absolutely amazing! We ‘lucked out’ by getting a personal tour from a fellow who works here. His anecdotes added so much to our understanding of the history of Winnemucca and its lore, plus he opened a couple of the buildings for us to explore, which was totally unexpected. He even cranked up an old phonograph for us, placed the needle down on the record and....voila! We were treated to the way homes enjoyed recordings ‘back in the day’ before ‘Hi Fi’ and ‘Stereo’ became a thing. From accounts of early trappers in the pre-migration days of the late 1700’s and early 1800’s....the changes wrought in the Humboldt Valley by the decimation of beavers....the first cross-country motorcycle ride in 1903(!) by a young guy who stopped over in Winnemucca....old cars and machines one can inspect up close....mammoth bones....photos of early pioneers and even Chief Winnemucca himself....the list goes on and on. This is a fabulous repository of historical artifacts. You will love it!
