Using vintage artifacts along with interactive iPad kiosks, the Museums exhibits tell the story of Sparks from the earliest settlers to modern day.
Visitors are able to immerse themselves in life in a railroad town as many of the exhibits are not behind glass, giving one the feeling that they are actually in the old dispatchers office or inside the original general store. Lifestyle dioramas depict a music room, living room, dining room and laundry room from early day Sparks.
Special exhibits pay tribute to the local schools, children and sports. Toys over 100 years old enrapture us, while the Sparks High exhibit including a poodle skirt brings a flood of memories to many.
As part of our mission, the Sparks Museum and Cultural Center preserves and protects artifacts, photographs and printed materials which illustrate the rich history of Sparks and the Truckee Meadows. Some of these objects are on display in the Museum; others are housed in our collections. Items are rotated into and out of the permanent exhibits giving the visitor the opportunity see different things on each time they visit.
Behind the Museum in the Memorial Park are the following:
Statues of police and firefighters
Memorial plaques listings Sparks residents who gave their lives during the Korean War and in the line of duty as police officers and firefighters
At the Museum pick up a copy of the Historic Sparks Walking Tour featuring six nationally registered buildings within easy walking distance of the Museum
Tours of the train are available Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. or by appointment for groups.
The Glendale Schoolhouse is open during special events and by appointment for groups.
