Trippy Seven Magic Mountains

Seven Magic Mountains in Las Vegas

Have you been to the striking Seven Magic Mountains art installation in the Nevada desert?

Here are 5 things to know if you're thinking about a visit to this magical sight: 

ARTIST: The installation was created by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone and opened to the public in 2016. 

HOURS: The sculpture is free to visit and open 24/7. At the golden hour, the light is incredible. 

THE STACKS: The seven limestone boulder stacks are each 35 feet tall and painted in vibrant hues of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each boulder stack weighs between 80-100 tons. The boulders are drilled and anchored into the ground using steel rods and epoxy.

GETTING HERE: The installation is located 10 miles (16 km) south of Las Vegas. Follow I-15 S to Sloan Rd (exit 25). Turn left (east) to Las Vegas Boulevard. Drive approximately seven miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. and the artwork will appear on your left (east). There is ample parking.

DATES: Seven Magic Mountains is a temporary installation and was originally slated to be on view until December 2021. However, that timeline has now been extended though 2026.
