Great museum! Our whole family enjoyed it. It's actually a very large museum and we spent an easy 2 hours there and enjoyed every minute. The basement underground mine exhibit was fun to explore. The main floor was dedicated to the Carson City mint and mining history. They also had a large native american exhibit. Upstairs they had really cool exhibits that varied: historical living in Nevada (from old cars and dental chairs to China dolls), mining and minerals of Nevada (including what the metal and minerals were used for), military test site, casinos and gambling, animal life of Nevada, and even ancient life of Nevada (woolly mammoth and ancient sea creatures), etc.
Way bigger than I thought. It takes about 2 hours or so depending how quickly you run through. Loved the native american side and was rather impressed with miners exhibit and ghost town. Had a great display of older generation hand guns and rifles. Not to mention a pretty sizable display of the geology that was presented.
