Rugged, dramatic, diverse — this is how our great state will be portrayed in Nevada, a new exhibition planned for The Discovery. A reimagining of the museum’s current Nevada Stories exhibition, Nevada will reside in a new location within the museum’s walls and will help create an understanding of our state’s beautiful landscapes, contrasting regions, diverse flora and fauna, and the varied industries and careers they foster.
This 3,000 square-foot exhibition, boasting more than 30 hands-on exhibits, will be a welcoming space for long-time Nevadans, new residents, and those visiting our state. Nevada will encourage museum visitors to become familiar with a variety of topics like the species that share our land, the clarity of Lake Tahoe, predator-prey relationships, land resource management, native and invasive species, and more. The exhibition aims to inspire stewardship of the land, and most importantly, a lasting sense of place.
