I've been to a lot of small town museums in my days but this has got to be the cleanest and the most professionally displayed museum I've ever seen. There were tons of different and historical things to see. I definitely recommend this museum to anyone who is travelling on the Loneliest Road in America.

We were up early to take the BLM guided tour of Hidden Cave. We were very impressed with the quality of display and upkeep on the exhibits. Lots of fun. Highly recommend.

We went to the Churchill County Museum. Admission is by donation. The staff is nice. We liked seeing the historical family home exhibits. They also have a very nice rock collection. There is a very large collection of obsidian arrow heads also. There is a room of historic bank safes. There is a superb bird photography pictures taken by Greg... More
