Don’t Miss These 5 Unusual Attractions In Las Vegas

Las Vegas is an oasis of gambling tables and neon lights situated in the heart of the Nevada desert. For many individuals, it’s the ultimate destination when you want to escape reality. However, there’s more to Vegas than classic casinos, entertainment venues, and nightlife shenanigans. Although those are the most sought after, here are 5 unusual attractions you don’t want to miss the next time you visit Las Vegas.

Burlesque Hall of Fame

Thousands of costumes, photos, and stage props await the visitor at the 24,000 square feet Burlesque Hall of Fame. Located near The Strip on Sammy Davis, Jr. Drive, this facility is filled with the artifacts, culture, fine art, and technology of the Burlesque Era. Exhibits include everything from the history of human sexuality to sex in outer space.

Evel Pie

The pinnacle of surreal dining in Las Vegas is located on Fremont Street and offers a treasure trove of memorabilia from the late entertainer and stunt performer Evel Knievel. You can enjoy some beer and pizza while taking in the old dusty piano along with a hanging motorcycle, pictures, and a retro pinball machine. With its unorthodox pizza menu, you can order candied pork belly and rattlesnake sausage toppings. If you are fond of an unconventional food, this might be it.

National Atomic Testing Museum

Located in the University District at 755 E. Flamingo Road, this museum takes you back through the history of the nuclear testing era that took place in the Nevada desert about an hour northwest of Las Vegas. You’ll not only see some of America’s first nuclear weapons, you’ll also be able to see pieces of the Berlin Wall as well as the World Trade Center and much more.

Pinball Hall of Fame

In order to have sufficient room to house nearly 700 pinball machines, this arcade recently relocated to a larger facility on The Strip. Visitors can spend hours playing vintage machines dating back to the 1950’s, all of which have been fully restored, while being surrounded by the sounds of nearby flipping paddles and ringing bells. Don’t miss the descriptive hand-written cards that detail each machine’s history.

Zak Bagans’ Haunted Museum

The American actor, author, museum operator, paranormal investigator, and television personality, Zac Bagans, spent many years obtaining some of the spookiest collectibles in order to curate his 30-room Charleston Boulevard Museum. Creepy hallways and secret passageways await visitors who want to see Charlie Manson’s bone fragments or Jack Kevorkian’s Death Van.
