Mission Statement

TheNevadaStateRailroadMuseumis a cultural resource dedicated to educating the broadest possible audience about the contributions of railroads and railroading to the development ofNorthern Nevada. This mission is realized through the collection, preservation and interpretation of significant locomotives, rolling stock, artifacts, photographs, documents and ephemera directly relating to railroads and railroading inNorthern Nevada.

Description

Welcome to theNevadaStateRailroadMuseumand the Department of Cultural Affairs, often referred to as the flagship of state government. Ours is one of the most diverse and visible branches of state government inNevada, providing a unique array of services to citizens of all ages, ethnicities and economic means. I am proud of the services the Department of Cultural Affairs provides as a State agency.

Nevada’s railroad history embracesAmerica’s westward expansion, the discovery of riches, and the grit to accomplish what to some was an impossible task. The Department of Cultural Affairs through theRailroadMuseumbrings this history to visitors, school children, and anyone interested in enriching their educational experience.

Volunteers like you contribute thousands of hours of energy, intellect and enthusiasm to the Department. From helping out as a museum tour guide to operating our historic trains, your time and efforts go a long way to make theNevadaexperience a memorable one.

Contribution of your time and talents adds to the success of our cultural and educational programs is greatly appreciated.
