  • One of our favorite places to see art. The Romantic Radicals was a wonderful treat. They get exhibits that the big guys dont. Cafe is always part of the experience.  more »
  • This is a real gem in the city, a beautifully-designed modern building that provides lots of space for displays. I enjoyed a special expo on English Victoria painters plus some of the ongoing expo...  more »
  • Beautiful museum with a diverse collection of art and artists. We loved the twinkie art and the national mural studies. Well worth a few hours of your day in Reno.  more »
  • I attended a college event at the Nevada Museum of Art, and unfortunately left my purse there. However, they were incredibly nice about it, responded quickly to my alert, kept it in a safe, and tested the person picking it up. Great security and great staff! (Also great art and unique events!)
  • Me and my Wife were here by chance on the our way fro Lake Tahoe to Edmonton 🇨🇦!! What a nice collection of art, great ambiance and way it has on four floors!! We really appreciate, the Front desk ladies whose grace in welcoming us in to museum touched our ❤️s!!! A perfect example of openness of US society!! 🙏🏻 thank You, ladies, for turning our evening in to life long remembrance in Reno!! It was 1st Thursday’s September, so we drank, danced and met so many nice people from Reno gentry! The unknown ( to me) singer was so nice and lovely!! I clicked a few snaps with her, got my Reno T autographed by her!! Lively orchestra was brilliant in their thump and dance inspiring presentation!! Thank you all, in Reno and NMA
  • I am so glad we have a nice little art museum in Reno. From to bottom this museum is amazing. The exhibits never disappoint. Even better, they have a whole array of art classes that are taught here. If you are a member you get discounts on classes and the gift shop which is pretty cool.
  • This place is really GREAT! Today was free admission day, but even if I'd had to pay full price ($10), it would have been well worth the price of admission. Parking was OK, the layout is a little confusing, but it's rewarding to get lost in this place, with fascinating art around every wrong turn you make. Very fine!
  • Amazing collection. Not a lot of actual paintings, but the screenprints and other works of art were great. Museum was nicely setup. (I mean, it really depends on which artist is featured when you go to the museum). Overall, good experience and nice staff.
