Nevada Museum of Art
Exquisite art, amazing tours, and out of this world French-inspired cuisine await your group at the Nevada Museum of Art, the only American Alliance of Museums accredited art museum in the entire state. First founded in 1931, this museum is almost as well known for its architectural design as it is its art, the architect behind the design being Will Bruder. The museum ‘strives to offer meaningful art and cultural experiences’ (Nevada Museum of Art), which we believe it does very well with its various displays, tours, programs, and events.
The museum is broken into four main thematic areas; Altered Landscape, Art of the Great West, Contemporary Art, and Work Ethic. In exploring these different themes rather than different time periods or artists you as the guest will get a much more comprehensive look at the broad scope of art in general.
Outside of these thematic areas, you will find the Center for Art and Environment (CA + E), which holds over 20,000 items within 75 different archives showing the creative interactions between people and their environment, The Museum Shop, and the highly popular onsite eatery, Chez Louie. The Museum Store offers unusual, handcrafted, and educational items, and Chez Louie offers truly amazing French inspired foods that are fun, modern, and affordable. High-class cuisine within a comfortable setting, Chez will offer such options as Salmon Toast for brunch, the completely worth it $16 Chez Burger for lunch, and specials of the day for Thursday night dinner (plus so much more!).
*It should be noted that the museum is open 10 am to 8 pm Wednesday through Sunday, but it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Chez Louie is open for brunch and lunch on days it is open, dinner only on Thursdays.
