New Tour Guide Training to Be Held in March at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City | Carson City Nevada News

Do you love Nevada history and, more importantly, do you love sharing that knowledge with others? If so, the Nevada State Museum in Carson City has a perfect opportunity for you. The museum recruits volunteers to help share Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage.

Participants will benefit from an in-depth, multi-day stroll through the museum’s collections and operations.

The Nevada State Museum was voted the best museum in Carson City for 2021. It could not have received this recognition without the group of volunteers who help it daily, said director Myron Freedman.

The next training sessions are Monday, March 7; Tuesday, March 8; Monday, March 14 and Tuesday, March 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. New volunteers will receive a full tour of the museum and collection centers, training in museum presentation and a tour guide. Current volunteers will learn about what’s new at the museum and upcoming programs. This training will also emphasize the Stewart Indian School, the historic Coin Press No. 1 and science programs.

“It’s so much fun getting to know Nevada and meeting cool people who visit the museum from all over the world,” said tour guide Jan Davis. “And all the volunteers are helpful, friendly and just awesome!

The training is free and comes with a tour guide and name tag. The number of places is limited, so participants can reserve a place on NSM Connect: Activity Registration, nevadaculture.org.

New volunteers will need to complete a new volunteer application. For more information, see our Volunteer Opportunities page.

The museum is located at 600 N. Carson St. in Carson City. Face coverings must be worn inside the museum by all visitors. Regular admission to the museum is $10 for adults and free for members and children 17 and under.
