The museum has a breakfast service on Sunday, with light music. After breakfast you can pay to tour the current exhibit, it is a nice thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

We have been members at the museum for years and it never gets old for my husband to steal me away from work for the afternoon to go to the museum. There have been times on a snowy mid-week day that we are the only ones in the place. LOVE IT!

We tried the first day to see this museum, but succeeded the next day: it has very great historic pieces along with contemporary and the history is everywhere

Great Art Museum, hidden gem. There certainly is a western ambience to the museum although there was a nice variety of paintings. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon

We've been to Reno many times but had never been to the museum. If you have an hour to spare, visit the museum. The building is relatively small and very doable. Their collection is small with not many known artists outside Nevada (guess). Nevertheless we recommend it. We went on a Thursday to find that it was "First Thursday" and... More

I grew up in Chicago and visited the Art Institute dozens of times. This is not that collection. But it is a wonderful space that looks broadly at art, from DaVinci etchings to Native American weaving, from photography to multi-media, classic to modern sculpture. Every visit I've made has been a new experience, often thought provoking. A couple of hours... More

We went here to see some fascinating art. I think there's not enough artworks to see. They should put more.

The art was relatively decent for a museum of that size in a town as small as Reno, but they had serious issues with our group. We had 11 middle school students with two chaperones. Our kids were well behaved for their age. They did speak above a whisper and walked rather quickly, but the museum staff acted as though... More
