Park West Gallery Founder Interviewed About New Las Vegas Museum and Gallery
Las Vegas is one of the most exciting cities on Earth, and it just got a little more exciting with the recent opening of the new Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery on the Las Vegas Strip.
That was the topic of discussion when Albert Scaglione, the founder and CEO of Park West Gallery, appeared on the popular iHeartRadio program “Michigan’s Big Show” this week.
Host Michael Patrick Shiels invited Scaglione on air to talk about the new museum and gallery opening and why Park West chose build a new home in the Entertainment Capital of the World.

Scaglione told Shields that Park West had been looking at establishing a footprint in Vegas “for a couple of years,” but it wasn’t until the end of 2020 that they finally found the perfect location. Scaglione mentioned that “it was a space formerly occupied by National Geographic’s gallery in a great location in the Caesars Palace Forum Shops. Within a few days of them vacating, we were operating.”
The new Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery is located at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, 3500 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. The current hours of operation are 10 am to 10 pm and you can learn more about visiting here or at http://www.parkwestvegas.com
Scaglione said that their location in Caesars Palace is already seeing strong foot traffic and strong sales, even after only being open for a few weeks. “We’re surrounded by the best brands in the world,” Scaglione said. “We had some of our neighbors come over and tell John Block, our Executive Vice President, that they were happy to ‘finally get some real class in the neighborhood.’ We appreciated that, we really did. It’s been great.”
One of the big draws is the museum’s world-class collection of art, which includes original paintings by Renoir, ceramics by Pablo Picasso, and other art by masters like Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, and Rembrandt van Rijn.
After touring the museum collection, visitors can browse through a vast selection of art for sale, priced for every level of collector. A lucky tourist might get to commemorate their Vegas vacation by taking home an original work by Peter Max, Mark Kostabi, Michael Godard, or a host of other popular artists.
While talking with Shiels, Scaglione noted that Park West has received multiple proposals to open other locations around the globe and many are being seriously considered—including the possibilities of more locations in Las Vegas.
In a press release announcing the opening of the Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery, Scaglione commented that, “Everything in Vegas has to be bigger, better, and more beautiful than anywhere on Earth. Our collection at the Park West Museum & Gallery Las Vegas will be second to none with everything from emerging artists to one-of-a-kind paintings by Renoir, Chagall, Picasso, and more. There’s no charge for admission and we can’t wait for tourists and locals alike to experience these fantastic works of art in person.”
