The Wilbur D. May Museum: Reno's Hidden Gem

The May Museum houses the private collection of Wilbur D. May. During a lifetime of world travel and adventure, Wilbur May accumulated thousands of rare and exotic artifacts, which he brought back to his Reno home. Since 1985, his unique ethnographic collection has been on display for the public to enjoy. It is the only museum in Nevada where you will see:
  • Antique firearms
  • Japanese swords
  • European glasswork
  • Egyptian tomb items
  • African tribal masks
  • Polynesian carvings
  • American Western art
  • Chinese pottery
  • Exotic taxidermy
  • Saddlery and tack
  • and more!
The Museum also hosts traveling exhibitions, special programs, and events year-round. This museum truly is a gem of the Reno/Tahoe area and not enough people know about it! Its perfect for all ages and no matter how many times you go you will always find something new!
