We had a nice time on our tour at the Burlesque Hall of Fame. The tour guide was crazy knowledgeable about the people and information pictured. We toured at the last time of the day and I wish we had gone earlier so we could have looked around after. We started our visit with a mistake. We parked a block too soon and it was a long hot walk to the venue, and cars kept blocking the walkway due to poor traffic light timing. But what we learned, there is parking RIGHT IN FRONT. Don't make the same mistake we did! There is a bend in the road and you cannot see the facility but it is there. We saw the play Gypsy Rose at a venue and so this was part of the reason we wanted to learn more about Burlesque. I would suggest allowing an hour and a half to visit. My favorite artifact is the champagne glass. Don't miss it!

This is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys burlesque or wants to learn more about this form of entertainment. Our tour guide, Buttercup, was super-knowledgeable about the history and development of burlesque, and there are so many cool personal items, artifacts, and memorabilia from burlesque performers. It is a little on the small side, but that makes it a great activity if you only have a limited amount of time. Definitely worth a visit!

Really enjoyed this fantastic and informative museum. They're holding the flame for a meaningful and often unmentionable part of history, so it wasn't just a titillating spark to the imagination, but also movingly educational. I highly recommend this for anyone and everyone. Darby was incredibly passionate about the subject and a fantastic voice for burlesque. The displays are changed and refreshed, so worth going again and again. I loved it, and I will return.

This is a small, but worthwhile, venue to explore for a few minutes. It is fun to view the displays and talk to the person working there. I was surprised at how interesting it was and would recommend checking it out if you have seen everything else in Vegas.

There is almost nothing here to see. Just barely a room full of photos on the walls. The Forbidden City exhibit was good, but it is not permeant. The whole back room is basically empty. The Jane Mansfield couch was not there. Original burlesque posters and costumes are not that expensive, so I don't understand why the back room is empty. Overall the museum is a disappointment.

This museum is in the Arts district. It is small but full of great information.Lots of history! Buttercup was our extremely knowledgeable guide. We only had an hour to spend, but would have liked to have been present for some of the activities one can participate in. This shouldn't be missed.

I loved the lady who conducted our tour. She was so knowledgeable and so entertaining in her delivery. My boyfriend only did the tour because I made him go. He ended up enjoying it and being way more interested in this place than he was at any of the other attractions that we went to (even the ones he picked out!) Go and support! This place is wonderful!

Maybe I was not paying attention, or maybe the website is put together well. But, I was honestly expecting this to be a real "museum." Like, with multiple rooms, and not just what was essentially a u-shaped hall. Seriously. It took my husband and I about 10 minutes to go through this place. Granted, there is an interesting timeline to read through and a number of interesting photos, maybe a dozen articles of clothing/trunks/pasties, but that's it. I would have been way, way more disappointed in the situation, which required a $50 round-trip taxi ride from the strip, if it did not incidentally bring us to the gates of old Freemont Street, which we never would have seen if we had not gone out there for the "Hall of Fame." So, it was not a complete loss.

Even though the museum was smaller tha I had thought it would be. It was full of history and the lady that helped us was friendly and wonderful. Price was a bit high. But they need to keep their doors open too. Would reccomend it to anyone who has a love for true burlesque in every fashion.

The Burlesque Hall of Fame, is a small museum, somewhere anyone who is a fan of neo-burlesque should visit.

The staff are welcoming, well informed and knowledgeable on the history of Burlesque. It isn't a vast museum, but it is unique, with a definite twist.

I would suggest that playing a visit to the museum can complement a wander through wider arts district, which is a wonderful contrast to the rest of Vegas.

I would add, the staff can also recommend good burlesque performances in Vegas, during your stay.
