Schools from all over enjoy free admission and programs built to enhance the museum experience for children.

The following is a list of programs currently available for school field trips: American Indian baskets, American mastodon and fossils, and pioneer life. Coming soon: Nevada history and the Chinese in Nevada. Gold Fever
is a program sponsored by local area gold mines–Newmont and Barrick–and hosted at the museum for every fourth grade student in Elko County.
NOTE TO EDUCATORS: Please be advised that a new field trip policy is now in effect. All field trips to the museum must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. As most field trips are scheduled for the month of May, we ask all teachers to schedule their end of the school year field trips by April 15, 2017.
K-12 art students in Elko County display their works in the Barrick Gallery at the Northeastern Nevada Museum, a community favorite!
