A step into the East Ely Railroad Depot Museum is a step back in time. It is located within one of the nation’s most complete historic railroad yards.
If touring the average museum offers visitors a glimpse into the past, a visit to the Nevada Northern Railway Museum is more like a trip through time.
In 1959, the White Pine County Public Museum was established thanks to the collected efforts of more than 100 Ely residents. The museum opened to great anticipation with a collection of exhibits that were both loaned and donated by various citizens of White Pine County.
