  • We visited 8/3/19 in late afternoon and it was very quiet. Beautiful art and sculptures. Lovely courtyard and gardens. Very interesting display on the history of Lake Mead which we found very informative and thought provoking. As we left patrons were arriving for a chamber music event. Highly recommend this museum.
  • It's always fun to go to museums and other places and see their collections. This one is no exception. It is a must stop and see place. I hope you enjoy it.
