Due to Federal Covid-19 restrictions, the Bureau of Land Management has not given us the authority to provide public tours. However, we are able to provide private tours to small groups (form at the end of this page). As soon as we know when public tours will be available, we will post the date on this website as well as on our facebook page. Please follow us for updates.
Thank you for understanding and stay safe!

The Churchill County Museum, and the Carson City District Bureau of Land Management welcome you to a tour of Hidden Cave. “Hidden Cave” was named because of the difficulty in finding its small opening.
Some Facts about the Hidden Cave
|In the mid-1920’s, the cave was visited by four school boys, the first 20th century humans to do so. The cave has since been excavated three times: once in 1940, again in 1951, and finally in 1979-1980.
A high proportion of the artifacts found in Hidden cave were unbroken and arranged in concentrations. That led to the conclusion that 3,500 to 3,800 years ago people used Hidden Cave more for a cache site than for their own shelter.
