  • Beautiful garden in Reno Nevada! Love going here to photograph insects and flowers! Wish there where more gardens like this in city.
  • Awrsome! I take ALL my out of town visitors there and visit all the changing exhibits.
  • Friendly staff. Permanent exhibition is fabulous. Bring any kid there to see the world through May's collection. A must!
  • While we have always enjoyed the arboretum which is lovely, today we went to the museum, and my review is directly solely at the museum manager. Samantha was abrasive, dismissive and profoundly unaccommodating, we will NOT be returning to the museum because that woman is so unprofessional and unkind.
  • Kids love it here. You can also walk around to see the gardens though it was covered in snow when I was there.

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.
