Has some really neat and interesting antiques to set you in the old feeling of the way it was back in Virginia City's prime! Medicine bottle, lamps, clothes, men's tea cups that have a place so their mustache doesn't get dirty. So interesting to see! Also huge visiual of all the mines and tunnels here. Really is amazing.

This museum is really more like an antique store but you can't touch or buy any of the antiques. There is a LOT of stuff to see and I must admit there were a couple of things that made me very excited (like when I figured out the weird little dishes I acquired years ago and use as butter dishes... 更多

The Tour is only $3.00 and is self paced. They have short movies that gives you a full description Mining and all the history of Virginia city.

It's really rare that you get to see anything worthwhile for a few bucks but this place rocks! Lots of neat stuff. I especially liked the mine tunnels diorama. Pretty impressive when you realize how many miles of tunnel there are in this area.
