      For the railroad buff or the person who's just curious, the Nevada Railroad Museum is a ride into America's nostalgic past, with an exhibit of some 65 locomotives and cars, most built before 1900, including some used in Hollywood films. There are also many other items related to railroad history, including a curious double-seat rail bicycle. You can also take a ride on vintage trains and even drive a manually operated rail speeder on a stretch of track. Guides are informative and very enthusiastic about their field.

      If you go:
      Open Thursday through Monday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission 6 dollars for adults. Children under 18 free.
