Nevada Welcomes the World
The museum’s latest exhibit, Nevada Welcomes the World, is a celebration of the 100-year anniversary of Nevada’s contributions to the 1915 Panama-Pacific and California-Pacific International Expositions.
These expositions led to some of California’s more memorable landmarks such as San Diego’s Balboa Park and San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts.
For Nevada, the expositions were a way to promote the resources of the Silver State to millions of attendees.
In Nevada Welcomes the World, photographs, costumes, manuscripts, and memorabilia tell the story of Nevada’s participation in the expositions.
