The Churchill County Museum has been dubbed "The Best Little Museum on Highway 50, America's Loneliest Road" and it certainly lives up to its reputation. It opened in 1968 in a former grocery store and is dedicated to preserving the history of Churchill county. It features exhibits depicting Native American life, pioneer travel, early town life, and others that show what life was like in the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum houses around 16,000 artifacts and historical items, and around 30,000 photographs of Native Americans pioneers, farms and ranches. Items include Native American artifacts, household items, clothing, quilts and other textiles, decorative arts, and old farming implements. Many vintage vehicles, and an old steamroller, are also located at the museum. The research archive contains numerous town records, deeds, newspapers and many other materials. Also at the museum is a old store that is one of the oldest buildings in Fallon.
