Take part in an eclectic experience — Nevada style! The year-in-the-making exhibit explores aspects of Nevada life far beyond the sagebrush and neon clichés. Coyotes, soapbox derby cars, maps: you can start to sense the breadth of this show. In addition to the largest photographic exhibit the museum has ever mounted, there are interactive elements, too. Type on a typewriter, feel an animal pelt. Bask in all of Nevada’s glory. Nevada State Museum, $9.95, nvculture.org
