The Burlesque Hall of Fame is a Top 50 Vegas destination (TripAdvisor) and a Best of Vegas winner. We welcome visitors to the world's only museum dedicated to preserving the living legacy of striptease and burlesque as an artform and cultural phenomenon.

With a collection of several thousand costumes, stage props, photographs, and personal effects documenting the careers and lives of burlesque dancers, comics, and producers over nearly a century, the museum is a growing testament to the power and social impact of the art of the tease.

  • I love this place. Just love it. I've been performing burlesque for almost 13 years now and the museum feels like a second home. The first time I wandered into it, it was hidden in a tiny little room off Fremont Street... years later, it finally has the exhibit and the space it deserves and I adore being able to watch it start to give back to the local community. Burlesque is a huge part of Americana and an even bigger part of Las Vegas and, besides the yearly weekender, this is where history is being made. What once was the naughtiest entertainment you could find is now a political and fringe art form. Las Vegas is not where burlesque came to die. It's where burlesque came to live, to preserve it's history and re-invent itself. It's an art form where women have always had a voice, even when they were playing Greek statues. Come to the museum. Take the tour. Join as a member. Find the local, independent, off the strip shows. Experience where burlesque came from, what is once was and what it has become. Yes, it might get raunchy. Yes, it might get political. Yes, it will definitely be risque and challenge a lot of your preconceived notions. But nothing ever grew in a comfort zone. This is Sin City. Challenge yourself.
  • Unique, quaint museum that details the history of burlesque. My wife and me visited the Burlesque Hall of Fame on a recent trip to Las Vegas. Our tour guide was very informative on the history and progression of burlesque. I highly recommend visiting since you won't find most of their displays and exhibits anywhere else. Very friendly staff and the gift shop has lots of great items. Located not far from the main strip. Thanks again for a truly unique Vegas experience.
