As the world prepares to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day (which ended World War I), the Nevada State Museum and the Springs Preserve mark the occasion with their first joint exhibition. The exhibit explores what led to the war, and Nevada’s contributions to the war both domestically and abroad. The exhibit spans three locations on the Springs Preserve property: the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas’ main entryway, The Big Springs Gallery in the Origen Museum, and the Boomtown 1905 exhibit which will be decorated to “Welcome the Boys Home” from the war.
