You are invited to view our new Exhibits at the Pyramid Lake Museum/Visitor Center. We will be showing a new video produced by Gabe Shaw.­ We have installed new exhibits and have made improvements to our permanent exhibits. We will be installing I-PADS to accompany our new exhibits making them more interactive an interesting for our visitors. We have also installed a large 12 foot movie screen and purchased a new projector to show films, and it also has the capability for power point presentations.

We have a new viewing room with a 50 inch high definition flat screen TV monitor to view DVDs and other audio visual formats.
