The Nevada State Museum offers an interactive visitor experience that interprets the history of Nevada dating back millions of years to the present. Across a 13,000 square-foot permanent gallery visitors hear how geology shaped the Great Basin, learn about the plant and animals that inhabit our great state, and see Nevada’s state fossil the ichthyosaur. Hear the story of Native Americans, pioneers, early settlers, miners, railroaders, ranchers and entrepreneurs. Learn about the Hoover Dam, the atomic era and the rise of Las Vegas as the resort capital of the world.
