Programs include ongoing archaeological research on the Lost City sites, school tours, changing exhibits and an archival library. The museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. It is one of seven managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
