    Hi all,
    The Bellagio Fine Arts Gallery Reward seems like a good deal for 4000 coins worth $17 admission. Can anyone who redeemed it in the last year give some feedback on the redemption process? Do you print out a ticket at home or do you need to go to the MLIFE desk with your ID to get a paper ticket or. . .?

    I did redeem a ticket for a CDS show last year, and I recall the ticket was like a ticketmaster PDF file so when I got to the entrance, they just scanned the ticket and I got in. Just wondering if this place operates similarly.

    How long do you allocate to spend in the Gallery (not sure about the size)?

    Thanks.

    I've used the reward a couple of times, here's my take on it.

    In theory, you're supposed to be able to book your ticket online, and I think you then just show up (Mlife card and ID) and probably a printout of the ticket. In October, I wasn't able to book a date online so I just went to the Mlife desk (Mlife card and ID), got a voucher, and then headed over to the the gallery.

    The gallery is not large, the exhibition's rotate every 4 to 6 months-ish. I recall about 20 or 30 pieces. They offer a free audio tour (iPod-ish thing with headphones), highly recommend it. Otherwise there's fairly minimum literature. I'm by no means an artsy type person, so with the audio tour, I was in and out in about an hour.

    My experience last October with the MyVegas reward for the gallery mirrored JoJoR's. I also agree the audio tour adds to the experience and 60 minutes is a good estimate. I would also suggest you take a little time to visit the adjoining Jeff Mitchum gallery.

    I haven't redeemed a reward but do get free entry as MLIFE Platinum. Enjoyed the unique experience. We saw Karsch the portrait photographer.

    Guys, thanks for the feedback. It does sound like a good deal. Unfortunately, when I purchased it, I discovered the entire 2017 calendar is empty! So, there are no "offer" dates in 2017. It looks like its from the 2016 batch but they didn't update it. Quite misleading. . .

    I had the same issue trying to book via the website in December. Just call the MyVEGAS 800 number and they'll book it without charge.
