* Though the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum is normally closed to the public for the winter season, our staff and volunteers continue to follow all guidelines issued by the CDC and the Governor’s Office.
We are thrilled to announce the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum has created a YouTube Channel. This media resource is intended to assist Nevada 4th and 7th graders in their collective learning of Nevada History, and connect students to the relevance and importance of the Comstock Story. Happily, the museum provides Nevada History educators with quick and accessible video resources that fulfill the State of Nevada’s 4th and 7th-grade history curriculums. In this, our goal is to maintain and expand the museums’ activities by combining history with arts and science projects.
Stay tuned for more videos!
