Museums in Reno Tahoe

Explore Northern Nevada History & Culture at Reno Museums

Want to wander among exhibits at the only accredited art museum in the state of Nevada? The Nevada Museum of Art has you covered. Want to stroll the “streets,” immersed in the sights and sounds of a bygone era as you feast your eyes on more than 200 eye-popping cars? Reno’s National Automobile Museum is the place for you. If science is more your style, you can find hands-on exhibits to delight visitors of all ages at The Discovery Museum. And let’s not forget the diverse history of this region! Virginia City and Carson City both have rich histories to contribute, and they have the museums to prove it. Walk the same wooden streets as Mark Twain on your way to the Fourth Ward School Museum in Virginia City. Or check out some of our state’s most treasured artifacts at the Nevada State Museum in Nevada’s capital, Carson City. Whatever you want to get out of your visit to the Reno Tahoe area, museums are the cultural center to pique your interest and inspire the inner artist, historian or scientist in you!
