Featured Museums

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 […]

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 — […]

Thunderbird Lodge, Lake Tahoe

More than 10,000 visitors experience the George Whittell Estate each year, Nevada’s only National Historic District at Lake Tahoe. The Estate’s public tours and educational programs offer a window into the region’s past: Native American, westward expansion, Anglo settlement, lumbering, mining, railroading, maritime transit, rusticating, tourism, casino gaming, conservation, real estate development, environmental activism and […]

The Virginia & Truckee Railroad offers 7 daily historic narrated steam or diesel train rides through the steep and scenic mountains of Virginia City to Gold Hill and back. Virginia City was “The Richest Place on Earth”, a metropolis built on top of one of the largest deposits of silver and gold ever found, forever […]

Churchill County Museum

The Churchill County Museum has a series of long term exhibitions that reflect key themes in the history and prehistory of the community.  A series of period rooms show changes in the material culture of Churchill County over time. A major exhibition interprets for visitors an authentically recreated tule home, constructed with reeds.  The travails of pioneers through […]

Ely Renaissance Village

The Geraghty property was six small antiquated houses overgrown and untended when the Ely Renaissance Society bought it and began its transformation into the intriguing and inviting Renaissance Village in northwestern Ely. These small houses have been restored to showcase the ethnic cultures of the people who settled here, nine unique museums depicting the turn […]
