The Nevada Museum of Art in downtown Reno is the state’s only accredited art museum, with a permanent collection that includes nearly 2,000 works of art. The oldest cultural institution in Nevada, the Museum provides guests of all ages a variety of educational and social programs to enjoy.
The collection at the Nevada Museum of Art is divided into five sections with a thematic focus of art and environments, a reflection of the community’s growing interest in the protection of the surrounding landscape: Altered Landscape Collection, Contemporary Collection, Sierra Nevada | Great Basin Collection, Historical Collection and Work Ethic Collection. The Altered Landscape is the museum’s largest focus collection with nearly 800 contemporary landscape photographs, by well-known artists, focusing on the evolution of the 1970s New Topographics tradition over the last 40 years.
The Museum offers a wide variety of tours designed to fit guests' unique interests and needs, including Group Tours, School Tours and regularly scheduled Guided Tours on Thursdays at 6 pm (except First Thursday) and Saturdays and Sundays at 1 pm.
In addition to its world-class exhibitions—including Rembrandt, Raphael, Quilts of Gee’s Bend, Andy Warhol, Chuck Close and more—the Museum provides visitors the chance to meet visiting and local artists and designers, attend special film-screenings, lectures and talks, as well as innovative kids, teens and families programming and educational classes.
