Cool Museums To Check Out While You’re In Las Vegas
When you think of Las Vegas, you may not think of museums.
But Sin City is home to a plethora of innovative, creative and entertaining museums that illustrate colorful histories. Across the entire cities, there are museums and family friendly activities that will fulfil all inquiries.
Non-Family Friendly Museums
Like everything in Las Vegas, even our museums have a risqué factor to them. One of the most interesting museums is the Erotic Heritage Museum located at 3275 S Sammy Davis Jr Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
This museum explores the intricacies and boundaries of human sexuality. It’s more than just a “sex” museum. But, it’s a museum that features thought-provoking art work and exhibits that leave you — at times — speechless. The exhibits often change, and there are also live shows that take place at the museum such as the famous “puppetry of the p*nis.”
The Burlesque Hall of Fame at 1027 S Main St #110, Las Vegas, NV 89101 defines Las Vegas fabulousness, and it’s a fun museum to go to.
Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum is also another stellar museum that features items from the most macabre and depraved individuals and acts in history. Sharon Tate’s dress, Jack Kevorkian’s death van and Michael Jackson’s ‘Propofol death chair’ are just a few of the hundreds of spectacles that you can witness at Bagan’s museum of curiosities.
Personally when I went, there was a heavy and eerie feeling throughout the tour. I loved it, but I don’t recommend this museum for little children.
Family Friendly Museums in Las Vegas
For families, your options are still wide and unlimited.
The Neon Museum Las Vegas is a beautiful arraignment of history and old neon signs that once witnessed glorious things. It’s a fun place for kids to roam around and weave through the huge neon marquees.
Meow Wolfe isn’t a museum. But, it’s an interactive art installation that will absorb the attention of any child for hours.
The Mob Museum is another cool experience for children that are interested in the history of Al Capone and more. There’s also a speakeasy in the museum — in case any parents need to know.
