Museums are a valuable resource for learning about and engaging with Nevada’s past. Many of Nevada’s museums are in smaller towns throughout the state with our larger state museums in Carson City and Las Vegas. A great way to get involved is to VISIT a museum, VOLUNTEER your time, and DONATE a rare find or funds.
VISIT- you can learn a lot at a museum. Museums also keep track of their visitors. The number of visitors often affects funding levels.
VOLUNTEER- museums need volunteers to assist with their collections, visitor education, and more. You do not need to have a background in museums to be able to help.
DONATE-museums may be in need of specific pieces to complete their collection but many are full to the brim with materials. A good way to support museums is to donate funds to help with preserving the resources they already have.
