Encapsulated In Time
The diverse museum collections of Lake Mead include biology specimens, paleontology specimens, archeological artifacts, art, and archives. The collections represent the diverse ecology and robust historical significance of Lake Mead as well as those cultures and species which pre-existed the creation of America's first National Recreation Area.
The Lake Mead Museum Team aspires to make our most requested collections available for all to view online. We are currently working to digitize the archival Historic Photograph Collection. As images are digitized, they may be accessed here.
A finding aid is a document containing detailed, filed, and processed information about a specific collection of records within an archive. Finding aids often consist of a documented inventory and description of the materials, their source, and their structure.
