Some narcissist (or his family) donated his game collection to this museum. People should bring a copy of IUCN redlist and see how many of these animals in the collection are now threatened with extinction. In theory, if you wanted to teach your children about how humans are threatening species you could use this as a teachable moment. Personally...if you want to see something really cool I would recommend Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park near Gabbs or Craters of the Moon which is north of Twin Falls.

Family of 4 Adults and 2 Children (3 generations on a Road Trip) really enjoyed this museum. We were on our way to Salt Lake City from Tahoe and had to stop by Elko. The reviews did not indicate how Awesome this museum is. we spent over 2 hours enjoying all that was on display. Taking a million pictures of all the excellent animals and antiques on display. Reasonable... tickets, $5 Adult, $3 Senior, $1 Child. What a deal!!! Will definitely come back when we are in the neighborhood. Super Clean Restrooms.

Lots of exhibits, including the Wanamaker animals. We liked the art work upstairs (Gary Butler) & the Will James exhibit, plus all the history exhibits. Don't miss the cattle rustler who left no human prints!

The Northeast Nevada Museum is a modern facility with a diversified set of exhibits. One section of the museum examines geology and history, including a large display of antique firearms. Another section is devoted to wildlife with stuffed animals from both Nevada and worldwide. The third section includes both permanent and rotating art exhibits. During our visit, there were photos from Ansel Adams, along with numerous paintings and sketches. Allow 2-3 hours.
