Schedule a virtual tour at the Museum of Natural History!

Our museum is currently closed to the public due to Covid-19. However, we are happy to announce our virtual programming, as described below!


Located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno, the Museum of Natural History holds irreplaceable specimens of plants and animals that are used for research, teaching, and outreach.  As the only museum of its kind in the state, the Museum of Natural History is a unique and important resource for understanding Nevada's natural heritage.

Educational tours for classes and groups are free, and include a video introduction to our museum and a standards-based, hands-on science activity led by UNR scientists.

  • Virtual tours last 60-75 minutes, including the video introduction and hands-on activity
  • Virtual tours are offered at 10 AM and 11:30 AM three or four days a week
  • Virtual tours should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance

Beyond these guidelines, it may be possible to make special accommodations for your group by contacting our Education Coordinator Cynthia Scholl ( or our Outreach Coordinator Julie Stoughton (
