Located on Nevada Highway 95 between Las Vegas and Reno, Beatty, Nevada, has long been the gateway to Death Valley.
Inexpensive motel rooms. 24 hour restaurants and a casino make Beatty an easy choice for exploring Death Valley.
Just four miles west of Beatty is one of the most spectacular ghost towns in America, Ryolite, once one of the largest cities west of the Mississippi.
The Beatty Museum and Historical Society has done a wonderful job of collecting and cataloging artifacts from the boom years of this area from over a century ago.
Step back in time and walk in the footsteps of our ancestors as you make your way around the Beatty Museum. It's far more than just seeing interesting exhibits. It's about engaging with history to deepen and enrich your knowledge.
I encourage you to visit and support this wonderful and important institution.
