Located in the heart of Old Town and surrounded by lodging, eateries, shops and galleries, SMoW is a right-sized museum and takes about 1 to 2 hours to tour. Come-and-go same-day admission allows guests to get a bite to eat and return later to experience more. We feature permanent and rotating exhibitions, which keeps the experience fresh so that when guests return at a later date (and they always do!), they see a new perspective again and again.
