Eclectic Nevada

2019-09-04 | Changing Gallery

All-star artifacts from Las Vegas and Southern Nevada

Explore more…from communications to coyotes, maps to motorcycle, desert adaptations to derby car!

To fulfill the mission of the museum to educate the public about our diverse history, our Curators collect and select artifacts that they think are going to be important many years from now.

Many artifacts are on display at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, but thousands more are carefully stored away for future exhibits and research.

The objects in Eclectic Nevada have been chosen to show the depth and breadth of our history from geologic time to mid-20th century.  We hope guests will reminisce, interact and maybe learn a few new facts about the olden times together.

Opening September 4th 2019

Note: The exhibit will also be available in Spanish.
