Notice of Appreciation:

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Mike Pailliotet at Connoisseur Carpet Cleaning for the outstanding job he did at the museum. The carpets throughout the museum look impeccable, and the difference is remarkable. Mike demonstrated a high level of expertise and care, ensuring that our exhibits and visitors will enjoy a cleaner and more pleasant environment.

Thank you, Mike Pailliotet and Connoisseur Carpet Cleaning, for your excellent work and commitment to excellence. Your efforts are greatly appreciated, and we look forward to working with you again in the future!

Agricultural Heritage Day

Saturday, August 6

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Please join us at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center for our salute to agriculture. Though Virginia City had the silver and Lake Tahoe had the lumber, the Carson Valley had the greatest treasure of all… Food! From beef, lamb, chickens, eggs, milk, butter and flour we were the go-to source for the food that fed our state. Visit our museum and see our exhibits portraying the rich ranching and agricultural heritage of the Carson Valley.

We’ll have games, activities and prizes for the whole family.  Free Admission
