The Amargosa Opera House and Hotel are located in Death Valley Junction at the junction of Hwy 127 and the State Line Road to Pahrump.

The Hotel is an ancient reminanent of early 1900's borax operations, greatly restored and available for booking rooms. The Opera House is the creation of the talented and dedicated Marta Becket, who has entertained countless scores of Death Valley travelers during her seasonal performances.

Sadly, their "official" has been closed. For some interesting photos of the buildings, particularly of the Hotel's interior, see:

For some delightful photos, past and recent, see Phil Kember's site at the link below.

You may want to try search engines as many travelers have written about Marta and her historic property.

I urge all to visit soon as one has to wonder how many more seasons Marta will grace us with her lovely performances, as she has been at it tirelessly for so very many years. Two of eastern Death Valley's most valuable gems: the Amargosa Opera House & Hotel, and Marta Becket.
