The Pyramid Lake Museum

On August 26, 1998, the Pyramid Lake Museum first opened to the public.

The Pyramid Lake Museum is located next to the largest desert lake in the world within the Pyramid Lake Paiute Reservation.

The museum exhibits a Paiute Native American story about how the Pyramid Lake formed.

The museum has various photographs of the geography of the lake itself.

The Pyramid Lake Wars forced the Paiute Natives into reservations after they lost the Second Battle of Pyramid Lake.

Hundreds of natives had died while moving to reservations in Oregon and Washington during the wintertime.

In addition, the museum has an exhibit on the Ranch Rock festivals that occurred on Pyramid Lake in the 1980s and the Burning Man festival, after it moved from Baker Beach, California to Nevada.
