It’s #GivingTuesday!

The Burlesque Hall of Fame has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. Earlier this year, we opened the museum in our new, vastly expanded location, right on Las Vegas’ Main Street in the heart of the Arts District. Our new location has given us room to create stunning exhibitions to share with our visitors, like our current display of costumes from Dita Von Teese’s collection, as well as room to store and work with our tremendous collection of over 5000 items. Our Bawdy Shop Studio hosts classes, parties, and special events like our recent edition of Naked Girls Reading.

We are so very thankful to be able to tell burlesque’s story to visitors from all over the world, burlesque veterans and newcomers alike...
