    In one wing of the Amargosa Hotel building, next to the Amargosa Cafe, is this little museum, dedicated to the local history and especially the Tonopah & Tidewater Railroad, which operated out of the very rooms where the museum is located. The vaults are still there. They have created a lovely HO-scale railroad showing Death Valley Junction and the Amargosa Hotel, etc.

    One cannot also see, if not actually go into, the derelict old buildings that I think were left over from the borax company-town days, when this place housed workers for the company.

    This is a fascinating place to visit, an unexpected spot of culture and artistic enthusiasm in the middle of the desert. In 1967, one woman took over what was at the time an abandoned old hotel, workers' complex and theatre built by the local borax company in the 1920s, and began operating the hotel, turning the theatre into her personal opera house. She did performances until the beginning of 2012 and painted the inside with murals.

    This is a little old diner attached to the Amargosa Hotel. It has some neat old decor with counter and old stools, etc., and good home-made food. Burgers, burritos, and a broad range of home-made pies are good. They have ice cream, too. Service is friendly and it's the only place to eat between Furnace Creek and Pahrump.

    Favorite Dish: Burritos and pie are our favorites here.
