Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Capitol Building and Battle Born Hall Museum are close to the public until further notice. See the list of all open museums here.

In October of 2018 the Battle Born Hall, Trailblazing Nevada exhibit opened to the public, showcasing a new museum on the 2nd floor of the Capitol Building.

The museum is free to the public. Trailblazing Nevada honors the remarkable characters who blazed new paths and found new ways to help our state and nation grow. It focuses on the historical events that defined Nevada before and after statehood.

The Battle Born Hall is 2,000 square feet and the new exhibit is presented in five exhibit areas that lead visitors on a tour from prehistory, to the mining boom, to statehood, to early Carson City through the 20th Century and looks ahead to the new Nevada of the 21st Century. It includes panels on many of the people and events that defined Nevada in its history.

The Battle Born Hall is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Guided tours from the Nevada State Museum take place on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
