Additional Info: The Goldwell Open Air Museum is an outdoor sculpture museum located in the desert of Nevada, United States. The museum is located in the ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada, which was a mining town that flourished in the early 20th century. The museum was founded in 1984 by Belgian artist Albert Szukalski, and features a number of large-scale sculptures and installations created by Szukalski and other artists.

One of the most iconic pieces at the Goldwell Open Air Museum is the "Ghost Rider," a sculpture of a ghostly rider on a horse made of metal and other materials. The museum also features a number of other sculptures, including "The Last Supper," a tableau featuring life-size figures of Jesus and the disciples, and "The Lady in the Lake," a sculpture of a woman emerging from a lake.

The Goldwell Open Air Museum is open to the public and is a popular tourist destination in the area. It is free to visit and is open year-round, although the best time to visit is generally considered to be in the spring or fall, when the weather is more mild.
