Nevada State Museum

The immense production of gold and silver from the Comstock mines prompted the establishment of a branch U.S. Mint at Carson City in 1866. The handsome structure on the northeast corner of Carson Street and Robinson was built of prison-quarried sandstone and produced nearly $50 million in coin of the realm until it closed down […]

Nevada State Railroad Museum

The 19th century locomotives, tenders and cars on display are so enormous, so painstakingly restored and so immaculate that they loom like huge sculptures, idealized forms rather than working machines. That’s not a criticism, quite the opposite: the effect is powerful. And besides, the museum maintains a busy Operating Schedule for motorcar and steam trains […]

Just above the site where thousands of wagons forded the Humboldt River on the long trek to California, sits the Humboldt Museum, overlooking Winnemucca, a town of about 7,500 people these days. The campus and main building command striking views of town, the Humboldt River, and the Sonoma Mountains. The modern brick building mirrors its […]

Nevada State Railroad Museum

To build Boulder Dam, the Union Pacific Boulder City branch went into service in February 1931. The Union Pacific hauled freight until 1985 when the right of way was given to the State of Nevada to preserve it. The Nevada State Railroad Museum is at the end of the line.
