The Battle Mountain Cookhouse Museum celebrates this resilient town, preserving regional history with artifact displays, educational presentations and traveling cultural exhibits.

Ely Art Bank & The Cuchine Collection

When it opened in December 2013 it was welcomed as a gallery in an art-rich community, and two steps through the door demonstrates how well it has succeeded — paintings, photography, work in other media, enclose the space in the art of White Pine county. And as a popular attraction to the traveling public — […]

Ely Renaissance Village

Central Nevada Museum

The Central Nevada Museum occupies a unique place in the retelling of the annals of the West.

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 […]

Oats Park Art Center

Fallon is a pleasant little city, the Churchill County seat, a grown up farm town with a Navy Base next door and this jewel within.
