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.

The East Ely Railroad Depot Museum is a lasting tribute to the area’s proud railroad and mining heritage. The museum experience focuses on the important role of the Nevada Northern Railroad during a massive mining and transportation boom in eastern Nevada at the beginning of the 20th century.
Walk through waiting rooms, baggage storage and offices used by one of the nation’s most important railroads. The depot has been restored to its 1907 appearance, including the original furniture and “state-of-the-art” office equipment such as a typewriter and an original mimeograph machine.
Researchers find the museum’s vast document collection a great help, which contains thousands of documents, ranging from payroll ledgers to original right-of-way maps that represent the history of the Nevada Northern Railway.
