    As the "ghost town" of Rhyolite has disappointed me, as this museum has amused me. It should be called the "any small museum in the open air of the Bizarre" as some works are unexpected - and just as much for a few pictures! The detour from the road between Beatty and Death Valley is barely 2 minutes, do not miss it.

    With all the wonders that the Valley reserve already, perhaps there was no need to force the hand with a Setup like that. The place is cute anyway. Stop if you're passing by a quarter of an hour for a maximum of two photos and a peek inside, but elsewhere in the Valley, for sure more breathtaking.

    I loved this place a lot of things in this little place. Must see if you're in this area it's next to a ghost town.

    A fun and unique ghost town with plenty of photo opportunity for those who like this type of thing.

    Great place to check out if you're visiting death valley. Lots of interesting art.

    This museum is free, but it has a small gift shop manned by the guy who oversees this place. The art is queer and stark, interesting contrast to the crumbling nearby ruins. I am not religious, but I liked "The Last Supper" ghosts the most. Like the town of Rhyolite, it isn't worth it to make a pilgrimage all the way out here just for the Goldwell Open Air Museum, but it's a nice side trip.

    One of a kind outdoor museum. I found it incredibly unique and humorous. A most enjoyable place.
