The Status of Tours at the Nevada State Prison

March 2023
The Board of Directors of the Nevada State Prison Preservation Society is pleased to announce the status of tours of the historic Nevada State Prison.

As some of you know, we received the long awaited Change of Use Permit in January 2021, which allows us to open and operate.

We have have completed two successful tour seasons–May through October of both 2021 and 2022 .  We have conducted hundreds of tours and delighted thousands of visitors with ninety minute tours of the site led by knowledgeable guides.  We opened our gift shop, offering T-shirts and other keepsakes.

Our seasons would not have been possible without our dedicated corps of volunteers.  Words can not express our gratitude for the time and talent that they freely gave us.  The hot and smoky summer days presented a challenge, but they all persevered, and gave our visitors their best.

The Board of Directors have set the following dates and times for the 2023 tour season of the Historic Nevada State Prison. Each tour day will have tours at 9.00, 10.00, 11.00, and noon.

The 23 tour dates are:

– Saturdays: 13 and 27 May; 17 and 24 June; 1, 15, and 29 July; 12 and 26 August; 2 and 23 September; 7, 21, and 28 October.

– Sundays: 28 May; 2 July; 3 September; 29 October.

– Mondays: 29 May; 3 July; 4 September.

– Tuesday: 4 July.

– Friday: 27 October.

Tickets are now on sale.

Each tour will last approximately ninety minutes, led by knowledgeable guides with a “sweep” to keep each group of about 15 visitors, together.

The current price of the tour is $20.00.  Until further notice, tickets will only be available through the on-line Box Office, and our system accepts a number of payment methods.
No refunds are available at this time.
