Welcome to the Sparks Heritage Museum, located in the heart of historic downtown Sparks, Nevada! The museum boasts 4000 square feet of indoor exhibit space featuring a permanent gallery highlighting the history and heritage of the city of Sparks, and changing galleries that feature a wide variety of historic, artistic, and cultural themes.

Across the street, and an outdoor train exhibit consisting of a steam locomotive, a caboose and a pullman business car stands next to the historic Glendale Schoolhouse, and both are available for tours by Museum representatives. Using artifacts to tell the story, the exhibits give a sense of the rapid changes northern Nevada has undergone, from ranching and mining to the introduction of the railroad and into modern times.
