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. 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 a charming rural parlor from the early days of nearby Paradise Valley are among the treasures awaiting your visit.
Located at the corner of Jungo Road and Maple Avenue
Open 9AM to 4PM weekdays and by appointment on Saturdays.
