  • This museum has an amazing collection in Nevada minted coins, Nevada mining history, a replica of a mine that you walk through and experience all facets of mining. Further, a full wing in native American artifacts, and a large zoological exhibit combined with Nevada state topography and so much more. It's truly a great museum to view, and is perfect for an afternoon tour!
  • The Nevada State Museum is a beautiful combination of history and architecture. It is so beautiful to see and is just perfectly sized! The convenience of the coin shop across the street made it even better to buy our Carson City minted coins. It’s a great thing to do on a hot day!
