Our Policy...

The Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records is part of the Nevada Department of Administration.  Our mission is to document the history, organization, and function of Nevada state government.

We serve state and local government agencies, the business community, Nevada repositories, and the public.  In-depth research using in-house materials, databases, and referrals to other organizations are available during our open hours.  

The Nevada State Archives offers tours to the public, organizations, businesses, and government personnel as part of our departmental mission to enrich the lives of citizens and visitors to the state of Nevada.  Our tours can be specialized to meet the interests of each group.

Tours are general 45-60 minutes and provide an overview of the history and functions of Nevada State Government; description of the formats of archival records and a showing of samples from the archives’ holdings.  

For group tours exceeding 10 persons or for customized tours, a minimum of two weeks advance notice is required.

Contact Cynthia Laframboise, State Archives Manager, (775) 684-3319 or to arrange a tour.

Please note...

  • To safeguard important materials, food and drink are restricted to the lobby or meeting rooms. 

  • School groups: One faculty member or adult must accompany every eight students.
  •  Accommodations for the physically handicapped, open questions-and-answers, hands-on demonstrations, or very large groups may increase the time needed to tour areas.  Please notify us in advance of your needs and interests.

  • Restrooms and drinking fountains are located on the upper level.

Vehicles are not allowed on the Capitol Mall.   Free parking is “first-come, first served” in lots nearby.
