For the Person Who Has Everything

Sample brickHave you ever walked in front of the Interpretive Center and looked down at the brick walkway? If you have, you've seen a tribute to those who supported this museum or just loved trains. What better way to honor those who played a role in railroad history or are just caught up by the romance of the rails?

When you buy a brick for the walkway, you enable the Museum to pass the story of Nevada railroading history on to future generations. Your purchase allows the Friends to support the Museum by providing funds for additional objects and projects that the State budget will not cover.

Buy a brick today.
