Conducting Museum Research

To fulfill its mission to inspire and educate a diverse public about the history and natural history of Nevada, the museum collects materials that help document the history, pre-history, natural history, and geology of southern Nevada. The museum holds these collections in trust for all Nevadans, and researchers can request information about this material.
