Humboldt Museum

Cross the river and take a tour through the history of the real West.

Just above the site where thousands of wagon trains forded the Humboldt River on the long trek to California, sits the Humboldt Museum. The modern brick building mirrors its historic predecessor, a church turned museum. Also on site is the Greinstein Building-- an 1880's store, and the Richardson-Saunders House-- an 1899 Eastlake style home.  Together, the buildings house the story of the community.

Remains from the Ice Age of 13,000 years ago, wonderful beaded and quilled regalia from an American Indian collection, vintage automobiles, keepsakes from Winnemucca's "art Nouveau" period, and an early soda manufacturing scene are just some of the displays awaiting your visit. 



Located off US 95 across from Pioneer Park at 175 Museum Lane, Winnemucca, NV.

HOURS: Open 9AM to 4PM Wednesday - Friday and 10AM to 4PM on Saturdays.
