There are 12 exhibition themes, ranging from Native American through the present day. They explore the Native American experience, the arrival of the first European settlers, industry and exploitation, leisure activities, and the current challenges of preserving the beauty and environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Over 400 works of art by 175 artists are arranged throughout most of the Museum’s exhibit spaces.

When you are up at Lake Tahoe, a good place to learn more is the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. Through exhibits and easy hikes around the area, visitors can acquaint themselves with the big variety of natural ecosystems and features found in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
