Children on the Seashore – Pierre Auguste Renoir

When people think of Las Vegas, they typically don’t think about fine arts, but there is a hidden gem that seeks to change that. Nestled in the back of the Bellagio, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Arts [BGFA] is where “great art goes on vacation,” and today, in celebration of National Museum Day, it’s free to see.

The gallery works in partnership with museums around the world to bring traveling exhibits to the intimate exhibition space. Currently, “Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso” is on display showcasing work inspired by the industrial revolution and urbanization.

BGFA is open daily 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. and offers complimentary docent tours at 2 p.m. If you don’t make it there today for free admission, tickets will set you back $16; $14 for Nevada residents and seniors 65 and older; students, teachers and military with valid ID. Children 12 and younger are free.
