The museum in Carson City is now open. We learned a lot about the early settlers, miners, native Americans, cave people, and dinosaurs-- all from the Nevada area. The taxidermy collection of animals native to the area is the best you will find. The kids will love the life-sized animated dinosaur area and the authentic replica of a mine in the basement. We spent about 90 minutes here. Knowledgeable docents are positioned around the building. Elevator makes it easy to get around with strollers and wheelchairs. here were a lot of new exhibits along with some of the favorites we had seen before.
