We stopped here to get our route 50 stamp. And luckily took the time to explore. They have some very interesting things. And they are arranged so you can see them very well. The buildings out back are also very interesting. Especially the Sheriff's house....More

Right across from the Ely cemetery this was a nice little museum. Ely has a lot mining history and this place has a great exhibit of that history. The woman there was very friendly and helpful.

Stopped by the small museum and had a great time looking at the exhibits. Also, I had a great time talking with Laura, one of the curators, who is of Shoshone indian decent. 3 dollar donation is required but worth it.

We enjoyed the wide slection of historic items: medical machines and supplies, geology, furniture, personal items, train depot, cabin and the 20,000-year old skeleton of a short-faced cave bear. Very low entrace fee.

Stop gambling for an hour and check this museum out-lots of oddities, especially medical instruments of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Good history of the surrounding area, too.
