In time for Nevada Day – Walking among ghosts of the Silver State

From the proud history of Nevada’s indigenous people, to mining to pioneers and antique fire engines, Nevada has some great small museums where visitors can walk among the artifacts and ghosts of the past.

Many small, but often overlooked, museums are on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, where several of the institution’s schools and colleges showcase the history and evolution of their academic disciplines. Others are tucked away in Carson City and Dayton. All are open to the public.
