  • This is an active Catholic church with masses on Sunday. Even if you can't make Mass, be sure to tour the museum. It's beautiful, fascinating, and you'll see pictures and artifacts of long ago...

  • This church is gorgeous inside and out. I loved the ceiling beams the most. The wood beams are really a work of art. There's a gift shop at the entrance where you can buy postcards or candles to light. A museum in the basement that's really cool to see with a lot of old photos and memorabilia.
  • Of all the tours we did in Virgina City Pat our tour guide at St. Mary's museum, was by far the most knowledgeable. He also does tours at the Sutro Tunnel. My wife and I really enjoyed our time here. The church is beautiful and very peaceful. Since Virginia City was full of Irish Catholic minners the churches history is really a great place to get a history of the city.
