Marjorie Barrick Museum in Las Vegas

Founded in 1969, the Marjorie Barrick Museum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is dedicated to promoting a better understanding of life — past and present — in the American Southwest, Mesoamerica and their environs through the acquisition, maintenance and interpretation of collections, as well as through exhibitions, research, programs, and publications.

By fostering academic research, creating educational programs, and through community engagement, the Museum strives to promote an appreciation of the rich heritage and diverse cultures of these regions, as well as an awareness of our place along a historical continuum of cultural exchange and environmental adaptation.

The Xeric Garden in Las Vegas

Located at the entrance to the Marjorie Barrick Museum, the Donald H. Baepler Xeric demonstrates how drought-tolerant plants and an efficient irrigation system combine to save water and create an attractive landscape. It was the first large-scale demonstration garden of its kind in the Las Vegas Valley.

The Garden creates a quiet, shady oasis in the heart of campus using shade structures, water features, benches, paving and natural stone, as well as a place for education, research and social events.
