I went with friends to Sunday brunch last week and found this place to be very interesting. The food selections were unique. We all got something different and each of us loved our entree. Creme brûlée French toast. Delish! There was live music and it was very good. And entry into the museum came with your entree. What a nice... More

If you are expecting a MOMA or Guggenheim or Getty, then you will be sorely disappointed. If, however, you enjoy eclectic collections presented in an interesting building, this is the place. Yes, it is small, but we should consider quality not quantity. The Nevada Museum of Art is the perfect size for an afternoon visit. You can see it all... More

There was just one floor open, that was not mentioned on there website, so for $8 the exhibition was very small and poor, barely objects and paintings to see. If only they have another 2 floors open, things would be different, just for one floor they should let everyone free or for $5. Not happy with my visit.

Nice Sunday brunch, with live jazz. The food is good, but not as great as the brunch food at Campo's (same owner). The Montage had a savory bread pudding, chorizo, and poached eggs, but was very, very salty. The museum is a great size with a good variety of art for a regional museum. There are traveling exhibits as well,... More

We were in Reno for the weekend and stopped by this museum. We found out that every second Saturday was free admission. It's definitely worth checking out.

This place is Art in & of itself. The collection is great. Especially the local collection. The visiting exhibitions are also quite good. The restaurant is outstanding. The layout of the museum is very impressive. Overall I highly recommend this .

Since it is the state level museum of art, I expected to see a large permanent western art collection, plus contemporary art from the west. Instead, there were a few interesting canvases and some interesting visiting exhibits. Small scale but nice.

I love this museum. The design is interesting as is the setting in an old near downtown neighborhood. The collection is small but well-curated. And the staff is super nice and friendly
