The main purpose of the museum is to establish, operate, and maintain a public museum and to collect, preserve, study, and exhibit the objects, photographs, and documents that serve to illustrate the story of humans and nature in Churchill County.

The museum is open to the public nearly every day of the year, and admission is free!

The museum has a triple mission to serve. One part of this triple mission is to share our county’s history with museum visitors. Currently, over 12,000 people visit the museum each year. Many are from Churchill County but a large majority visit from all 50 states and many foreign countries. The second part of our mission is to provide local people, adults and children, with programs that enlighten and teach. Special speakers, children’s events, Association newsletters, changing exhibits, and our yearly publication serve the community by explaining Churchill County’s past.

The last part of our mission is to ensure that our collections of Churchill County artifacts and archival papers are preserved for the future. This means that the museum must continue to employ trained staff that will store, catalog, and maintain our collections properly. The museum’s photographic collection alone contains over 40,000 photographs! Information about each of these photographs has been entered into the computer, making them easy to use for research and exhibit purposes. The general public is invited to look through the photographs and copies of most pictures can be purchased through the museum.
