  • Definitely a LEARNING CENTER! its rather small but it's perfect for a visit in the middle of nowhere. It's nice & cool equipped with water & bathrooms. Many 2D models, displays, graphs, tons of pics, hands-on stuff & brief educational videos & take-home brochures. Definitely stop by & take a look.

  • I've been driving past this place for decades and just this weekend stopped for the first time. I'm so glad we did! The views of Pyramid Lake are gorgeous. Inside is a small, free museum with exhibits about the water cycle and the California Water Project. I'm an Earth Science teacher, and I learned so much from my time there. I really wish I could take my class there. We will definitely stop again when we have all the kids with us. Bathrooms were clean and parking was easy.
