This is a small museum, but worth a visit. Lots of display cases and a lovely gift shop with unique items, at reasonable prices. It is a Pokemon stop too!

The proprietor was very informative and excited about her job. Many artifacts were there to be seen, artistically placed and lots of media displays. Allow at least an hour or two to go through this museum. Worth seeing!

I've stayed at The Nugget several times. The rooms are nice, but the price is a little high for the amenities.
