Nevada State Museum
Ramble into locals who have stories to share. They’ll steer you towards the best watering holes. The best hot springs. The finest stretch of open road.
The best places to witness stars lighting up the night sky like you’ve never, ever seen before (that’s a guarantee). The Board of Museums and History is established by state law (NRS 381.002) to support the activities of the Division of Museums and History (DM&H) and the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).

With respect to the functions of the DM&H, the Board shall develop, review and make policy for investments, budgets, expenditures and general control of the Divisions’ private and endowed trust funds.
