I truly loved this museum. Very unique, also a great photo opportunity. Its free and not very crowded. Perfect little stop along, while doing a long distant drive. You can see some art while stretching out your legs. Ghost town next door also has restrooms open to public. Ghost town is great if your into ghost towns. Don't expect actors... More

Nice museum, expect not too much of it. The museum is in/next to the Rhyolite ghost town of which you do not must expect also too much.

We actually enjoyed the stop here more than the ghost town of Rhyolite. Some cool sculptures with the Last Supper being the highlight. Some great photo ops here. Worth a quick stop on the way to/from Death Valley

Been here a couple of times. The life size statues of the last supper are moving to see. I love the creativity of the artists. Wish it would expand and more artists would create beautiful works of art here

I don't even know how to describe this place. It's on the road to the ghost town of Rhyolite so I suspect it gets a lot of traffic because of the location. Driving along you see these ghostly looking plaster of paris humanoid figures, against the backdrop of the Amargosa Valley, that distinctly remind you of the Last Supper. Indeed,... More

Glad we checked this place out. Great views of the surrounding areas, but also eerily creepy of the run down buildings. The art is also scary abstract. If you're looking to do something off the wall different.. This is it.

A true artist view. Walk around and try to understand the artist's statements if you can. Truly a unique place to see while visiting Rhyolite.

Goldwell has a true sense of the macabre. The Last Supper scene was facinatingly spooky. I also loved the mosaic sculptures.

Prior to my visit I had researched Rhyolite and was a little taken aback when we arrived to see this exhibition on the side of the road on the way in to the ghost town.Not really my thing but each to his own taste.
