Nevada has much more than gambling to it - dating back millions of years ago. The permanent exhibit is a stunning array of fossils such as Nevada's own prehistoric 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. In the basement you'll find a recreation of an underground mine. It's the perfect place to spend a couple hours with the kids! (Submitted by Shirley Beauchemin Thurston)
