We’re bringing back a cherished piece of Reno history: a vibrant new version of the beloved Sky Room that once stood atop the elegant Mapes Hotel in downtown Reno. A Sky Room for the 21st century—the Nightingale Sky Room—is available year-round for private events, weddings, retreats, and community activities, making it a new northern-Nevada landmark.
The Museum’s entire 4th level is renamed the Fred W. Smith Penthouse in honor of the chairman of the board of trustees of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The Penthouse includes the 4,800 square-foot Nightingale Sky Room and feature a state-of-the art banquet kitchen and retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls that allow for the creation of an open air environment. The outdoor Stacie Mathewson Sky Plaza complements the Sky Room with nearly 5,000 square feet of patio space.
Architect Will Bruder’s inspired new rooftop design, built by Clark/Sullivan Construction, enhances the Museum’s reputation for eye-opening innovation, and for being the home of first-rate exhibitions, educational programs, and organizational philosophy. We look forward to sharing the western sky with you.
