  • I absolutely loved this museum. The art in the desert with the mountains in the background is so incredible. Loved it!!!! It's across the street from the Rhyolite ghost town, so make a day of it. An e...  more »
  • I stopped here a couple of times when in the area. Interesting and readily available. I take lots of photos. Very enjoyable. Lots of free parking. Easy access. Walk around and enjoy the exhibits.  more »
  • The sculptures are very interesting. Can't imagine what it was like for the model who was draped in all of this. Peaceful yet eerie all at the same time.  more »

  • This is a stop to make on your way to visit the Rhyolite Ghost town. Very interesting outdoor art to say the least. The Last Supper is haunting in its appearance especially in the late day light. Add this to your Death Valley experience.
  • A lot of variety of art, mainly sculptures. It is definitely a really cool place to stop and the guy that runs it is very friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate the more hands on, you're allowed and encouraged to touch it. It is also right next to the Ryholite ghost town which has a fascinating history itself. Be prepared to spend an hour or two here, it's worth it. No cell service but there is a small town close by called Beatty if you need gas or anything.
  • OK this is a good place not far off the main road to walk around for 15 minutes. I enjoyed it because I got there early morning before other tourists started showing up. It is next to Rhyolite a mining ghost town that attracts most visitors. It's free so stop and enjoy some art.
  • Fun stop before or after Death Valley or while visiting Rhyolite. Free pamphlets explain the artwork. Can't beat free!
  • Little museum at Rhyolite. Interesting, knowledgeable gentleman that was willing to tell all kinds of stories. He also makes incredible Indian Wood flutes. Reasonably priced. Take a few minutes and stop in to say hello.
