Historic Tonopah Mining Park Sign

Tonopah is known for its breathtaking night skies, historical mines and buildings, and strong community values. Our city’s best attractions are all easily accessible when you stay at the Tonopah Station Hotel, Casino, and RV Park. Let one of our friendly staff members point you in the right direction.

Central Nevada Museum
The Central Nevada Museum was voted Best Museum in Rural Nevada 3 years in a row by Nevada Magazine.  The museum, which offers free admission to all, has exhibits that show off the uniqueness of Nevada’s history. From the famous, Howard Hughes, to the infamous, Nevada native Barbara Graham, the museum will give you intriguing insight to Nevada’s most notable people. You can also learn about Nevada’s contributions to ranching, mining, and the Native American culture.

Tonopah Historic Mining Park
The park is located on the site of one of the original mining camps that came to the area in the first decade of the 20th century.  Tours are available, and they provide visitors with a first-hand glimpse into Nevada’s interesting mining past.  The park covers over 100 acres and features restored buildings and equipment from the mining industry of that era.  Included in the tour (for the not so faint of heart) is a walking tunnel underground to view the 500 foot slope of the mine.

Royston Turquoise Mine
Tours for this mine can be scheduled. Visitors are able to dig through material that has been brought up from the mine.  Visitors can sift through this material to find rare turquoise to take home.  For a $100 fee, tourists can go to the mine site and observe the workings of the mine itself.

Tonopah Speedway
Short track racing at its finest, this ¼ mile oval dirt speedway is now IMCA sanctioned. The track has been updated with fresh banking and walls in the corners. Catch some fast race car action at the Tonopah Speedway.
