Large museum with local history and the animal display was awesome. Worth the visit! We came to visit our son who recently moved here and enjoyed learning the Elko history.

The variety of exhibits and size of this museum in a small town is awesome! The Wanamaker Wing is a must-see, along with the Will James and Ansel Adams permanent exhibits.

This museum had displays from prehistoric times, mammoths in Nevada to wonderful photographs and art. The animals displayed from around the world was truly amazing. A nice firearm collection from a private collector. Would recommend this museum.

So cool - a few years ago they found mastodon bones in the backyard of a local family. Really love museums that showcase local history. The Basque exhibit covered regional culture and included some beautiful clothing. Enjoyed both the Ansel Adams and Will James artwork upstairs.

This was an unexpected gem of a museum. The collection is eclectic from stuffed animals to mining gear, and a wonderful antique gun collection that is easily worth over a million dollars.

The Northeastern Nevada Museum was a great surprise we stumbled upon while in Elko. The history of the area is very well represented in all of the exhibits, which were all extremely well done, from the mining, to fashion, to the gun collections, etc. It is a great place to learn about the areas's past.
