  • I was on my way to Rhyolite ghost town when all of a sudden I see these sculptures sitting out in the desert as I drove by. I stopped in but the museum was closed. Which was okay cause you can still w...  read more »
  • It has some interesting sculptures & artefacts, along with leftovers from the heyday of the town, rusted oil cans etc. Unfortunately it was unmanned, the day we were there, but it looks like a work in...  read more »
  • The Museum is located in the abandoned town of Rhyolite and complements the atmosphere of abandonment, prevailing in the city. Elsewhere in these sculptures would look like, I think it is not so appropriate, but they fit perfectly into the landscape.

  • If you're from Antwerp, and even if you're not familiar with the art-scene, you need to to stop here: nothing wrong with being chauvinistic near Death Valley. Not from Antwerp: stop too. It's fun.
  • We stumbled upon this museum by accident after spending a couple of hours exploring Rhyolite. What a treat! Great photo ops and we wished we had arrived earlier as the sun was nearly down before we were finished poking around. This museum makes for a fun day trip from Las Vegas, a way to get some exercise and easy entertainment - great for the kids. Be sure to bring plenty of water so you can stay longer. I also suggest a hat and sturdy footwear, as this is the desert. Gravel/dirt roads are easily accessible and their is plenty of parking, even for oversize vehicles.
  • Well some of us are hard working Americans that take a vacation once every 5 year, yep we're tourist, not out of work elitist traveling on dad's retirement. It's a refreshing sight to see after looking at the desert for hours at a time. The local art is original, no doubt. Fun stop before Death Valley.
  • An interesting place for A quick stop.
  • Weird as hell and doesn't really jive with the ghost town feel, but this art museum is a fun surprise in the desert.
