Our Prehistoric Theater is the Ordovician fossils at the Great Beatty Mud Mounds overlooking this historic town. Our Nature Exhibit has hundreds of miles to view with wildlife and plant life indigenous to the Oasis Valley and Great Basin area. It all exists outside the town limits in the open desert. Inside the museum you will experience life in the early 1900's. Learn how the early miner's lived, worked and played. Walk the footsteps of the "Bullfrog Gold Rush" and learn about the ghost towns and sites in the area.
