Stay For The History

Come For The Stars,

Because it’s so far from the bright lights of any major city, Tonopah’s night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing. Tour our Historic Mining Park & visit the Central Nevada Museum.  Go off-roading or visit nearby ghost towns. Shop in unique stores, discover local artists & even pan for gold during our annual Jim Butler Days celebration!
