A tremendous tribute to American burlesque. Developed and run by past burlesque queens. Small venue but chocked full of information and artifacts. An important connection to the past especially to the culture of Las Vegas.

This is a small attraction but very good. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable. It's close to the container park and freemont st. Parking can be an issue here, but there is some on street parking.

While it was small and hard to find at first, we were very pleased with the museum. The women working there made all the difference-she was very friendly and informative, and we learned a lot about an often ignored topic.

Small, but charming museum documenting the history of American burlesque. Located close to the Fremont St Experience, container park & Mob museum, so a great place to visit if you're in the area to see any of those other sites too. Informative timeline, some great original exhibits and friendly staff. A small donation is requested, and it's also adjacent to... More

Believe the other reviewers who've written that the museum is small - as much as I loved it, I wouldn't have taken a $50 cab ride JUST to see the Burlesque Hall of Fame - but the BHOF is indeed mighty if you're interested in the history and culture of American burlesque. The pieces in the museum, especially the gorgeous... More

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... More

Smaller location, donation only, history of the story of burlesque. Lots of pictures, a few physical displays, and a great timeline along the wall bringing you from the birth of burlesque to the present. Worth the visit.

The person staffing the museum is quite knowledgeable. Talk to him! The Hall is also near Arts Emergency for more interesting viewing.

Like other reviewers stated there is a $5 suggested donation per person. It's a small place with lots of information about the history of burlesque including artifacts and pictures. There is also information about the current subculture surrounding the art form.

As has been mentioned, it's a tiny place. I walked by a few times trying to find a direct entrance only to realize it was essentially inside the Beat Coffehouse, a quick left towards the room in pink. The room is smaller than a studio apartment if not also most of the spaces over at Container Park. (See review.) If... More
