Bellagio fine art gallery is unique place to check out, especially if you want a break away from the strip. Recommend trying to go without children, as it might be a little boring for the little ones. Art changes at least seasonally or yearly, so try to check it out more than once.

The Samurai exhibit at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art
is fascinating. There are well preserved exhibits of art
and armor covering centuries, going back to the 14th
century. There are several complete suits of armor,
including equestrian armor. Really outstanding.

It was nice to get out of the noisy casino atmosphere. Exhibit was very well done, with good short audio accompaniment. Everyone learned something new. Price was a little high, but there are senior and student discounts. Don't bother buying tickets ahead, just get them at the door.

When you have the opportunity to view battle gear that is more than four to six hundred years old, you don't miss it.
This exhibit was on a visual billboard outside the Bellagio, and we went in to check it out. The price was more than reasonable, and became a great value once you were inside and saw what was being offered for viewing. at $ 16.00 each for seniors or military, your entertainment dollar is real value here, particularly when compared to losing money at the casino.
We spent nearly two hours here, with only three rooms of display.
If you have not seen the incredible artistry of Japanese Swordsmiths, iron workers, laquer workers, Papier-mâché artisans, bow and arrow makers, marveled at the complexity and delicacy of the workmanship of these artisans from centuries ago, you need to add this to your bucket list. As it is leaving at the end of April, I would recommend you find out where it heads to next, and if it is coming to your area, GO!!!
Many of the pieces were owned by Daimyo's (Japanese Lords) of the Shogunate era, and include helmets, armor, horse armor, battle masks, battle fans, shoji screens, swords, naginata, kyudo(The Way of Archery),bows, bamboo arrows, intricate arrowheads, and so much more.
We were provided with a tour recorder, whcih had corresponding numbers to many of the exhibits, which narrated the items being shown, and certainly enhanced the experience.
I think, once you see the intricate lacquered Papier-mâché helmet covers, and learn that they weight nearly nothing sitting on top of an iron helmet with littlery hundreds of iron plated brought together, you are stunned to think of the hours of work put into the items, as well as the quality achieved that many centuries ago.
Well worth the money.

The gallery itself is quite small, pretty much just two rooms. I guess there's nothing permanent in there, that it's always a visiting group of art exhibits based around one primary theme. In this case it was all Samurai, and most of these were uniforms, weapons, etc. Interesting, but I would have liked to see some variation with respect to Japanese historical culture.
