The Lost City Museum is located in Overton, NV and is one of seven museums in the Nevada Division of Museums and History a part of the Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.

In addition to three exhibit galleries, the museum contains a small theater, research library, museum store, outdoor archeological and historic exhibits.
