  • This is a can't miss attraction. See where silver money was actually minted. See what it is like to be in a gold/silver mine. Only $10.00 and well worth it.

  • Visited the State Museum with my family and we had a great time. It's not a huge Museum but it's sure filled with a lot to see. One of our favorite parts was the mint area. The video you can watch has some really interesting information on Carson City and the history of the Mint through the years. They do have it open to see actual minting of coins but just on Saturdays I believe. There are parts that they are expanding and we can't wait to go see the new parts of the museum when it's all done.
  • What an excellent State Museum! From the ancient history of Nevada to modern day, everything is in one place. It is a wonder that such a sparsely Populated state would have such an amazing museum. Especially enjoyed the taxidermy and Nevada history wings. I didn’t realize this was a US mint so there is a lot of history here. Not just the gaming industry but all the mining and contributions that Nevada, the state has made. I highly recommend taking time out for this Museum it’s fun to know as much about the state as it’s residents.
