The Silver City Museum is housed in a beautiful old building that once served as the fire station. It's right downtown, a few blocks off the main street on a well landscaped and shady lot. It houses ever changing exhibits of local history illustrated with photos and artifacts from its permanent collection, as well as special exhibits created around specific themes. It's a most pleasant way to get to know this area, its history and traditions.

Nice small museum in a beautiful Victorian house. Some of the exhibits stay others rotate. So you can bring guests and see something new.

They have done a very nice job with converting an old Victorian House into this museum. Changing exhibits, all about the Slver City area, donation is appreciated.
