Changing Exhibits in Jacobsen Interpretive Center

Starting this summer and over the next several months through the winter the museum staff will be making changes to the Jacobsen Interpretive Center. Staff is working on an exhibit to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Pacific Railroad (Transcontinental Railroad), which occurred on May 10, 1869. The exhibit will cover various themes,such as the difference the railroad made to Nevada and the United States; cultural impacts; some of the various Hollywood films made on the subject; the completion of the V&T; and others. Because of this, there will be some changes and construction in the Jacobsen Interpretive Center. So far the ramp along the west wall has been removed. The Gibson models have been relocated from the center aisle to new shelves located on the walls near the offices. Eventually the Dayton and the Inyo will return, and there are plans to bring V&T coach 17 (the Commissionerís Car) in as well. This will be an ongoing project for the next several months. There may be different railroad equipment inside the Interpretive Center at various times and may change weekly. If you have questions, please contact the Museum at 775-687-6953.
