  • There are a couple of things here that make this museum definitely worth the 10$ entry fee. The Maynard Dixon exhibit was excellent and provided a cohesive overview of the famed illustrator of Western tales' career. Some of the pieces in this exhibit are truly excellent. The other part not worth missing is the sky gallery, the museums open air roof deck. The view of Reno is stunning. There is enough to see here for an hour to hour and a half.
  • Great views from the top floor giving a good view of the city. Fantastic art work that includes a variety of modern art. They also participate in the BoA free museums on us program. Fantastic staff that were extremely nice.
  • Great little museum. Parts were closed off due to a party, but that was ok because there was plenty to look at. I really enjoyed the photography. Plus, they are a receptacle museum, so we got in free.
  • This place has some cool local and international exhibits that cycle through. There's a great view if the Sierra mountains in the floor sky room.
  • Burning Man exhibit They have a really good brunch menu for Sunday highly recommended

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
