Details & Information

The Sparks Museum recently opened a Cultural Center in the newly restored historic library and justice court building.This light airy space features hardwood floors and historic fixtures - ideal for intimate functions, meetings, receptions, art openings, etc.The Museum itself boasts 4000 square feet of indoor exhibit space, the oldest one room school house in Nevada and an outdoor train exhibit consisting of a Steam Locomotive, a Caboose and a Pullman Business Car.Using vintage artifacts to tell the story, the exhibits give one a good sense of the rapid changes the region has undergone from ranching and mining to the introduction of the railroad and into modern times. A new interactive exhibit, using iPad technology, also depicts the significant role the region has played in the Space program. The Museum and Cultural Center are available in part or in their entirety for private functions. Tours can be arranged by appointment.
