More Interpretive Center Changes

The track laying exhibit has been demolished and removed. The McKeen Car is now in its place. The front desk was moved about two feet closer to the front door to provide more room between the desk and the museum store door. The desk has been lengthened which will allow for more space for brochures and flyers and for additional personnel during special events. A new map of Nevada railroads has been installed between the doors. If you have questions please contact Adam at or 775-687-6953 x224
