There is a plethora of incredible art on display in every crevice of The Venetian and The Palazzo. The sheer amount of work that was put into reproducing the Italian art and architecture as authentically as possible is staggering. If you still crave more then check out the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus. Uniquely located inside a historic gymnasium (the original basketball court floor has been kept and maintained), they feature fine art exhibitions from artists tied to the region along with cultural artifacts from the indigenous Paiute tribe and ancient Mesoamerican people. When they’re not hosting University Forum Lectures and Visiting Artist talks, they show experimental video art. All they offer is free to the public, but a small donation is encouraged. They have a wonderful collection and it’s one of the best things to do in Vegas during the day to escape the heat for a bit.Learn More
