Many of the Nevada Historical Society’s finest artifacts can be seen in the permanent and temporary exhibits. The permanent exhibition on Nevada history illustrates the highlights of the state’s history, including the lives of the earliest inhabitants of the Great Basin, the desert stretches of the Immigrant Trail, the Comstock era, the effects of Nevada’s liberal marriage and divorce laws, and the rise of the gambling industry. Temporary exhibitions are short term displays exploring topics relating to Nevada History.
