Curator’s Corner is a bi-weekly look into the museum’s collections guided by one of our outstanding curators. Since 1941, the museum has collected and interpreted objects related to Nevada’s unique heritage, including historical, cultural, anthropological, and natural history objects. Curator’s Corner is offered from 1 to 3 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Visitors passing through the museum’s concourse will be able to enjoy a brief presentation by the curator as he or she exhibits the object or group of objects. Each month the same Curator’s Corner will be presented twice. Check our event calendar for details about this month’s presentation.
