Such a short trip can take you so far
Cross the river and take a tour through the history of the real West.
Just above the site where thousands of wagon trains forded the Humboldt River on the long trek to California, sits the Humboldt Museum. The modern brick building mirrors its historic predecessor, a church turned museum. Together, the buildings house the story of the community.
Remains from the Ice Age of 13,000 years ago, wonderful beaded and quilled regalia from an American Indian collection, vintage automobiles, keepsakes from Winnemucca's "art Nouveau" period, and an early school scene are just some of the displays awaiting your visit.
175 Museum Lane. Located off US 95 across from Pioneer Park.
Open 9AM to 4PM weekdays and 1PM to 4PM on Saturdays.
