Contents of the History of Communication Museum in a Box

Nevadans have made a habit out of finding innovative ways to communicate.  From telegraphing our state constitution during the Civil War to online gaming, Nevada has always used communication technology to its benefit.

Your students will have an opportunity to explore different forms of communication like rock art, telegraphs, typewriters, record players, cameras, and digital technology while learning about their role in the history of our state and our country.
