Top 10 Most Bizarre Las Vegas Attractions

A wealth of unique curiosities can be discovered throughout Sin City for those travelers who like to stray off the beaten path. Below are 10 of the most offbeat attractions in Las Vegas…at least in my opinion.

ATOMIC TESTING MUSEUM
755 East Flamingo Road
The 8,000-square-foot Atomic Testing Museum traces the role the state played in the development of the United States’ atomic energy program at the Nevada Test Site. View a wealth of artifacts in the exhibition hall, check out the “Ground Zero Theater” and view vintage atomic testing film clips.

BUGSY SIEGEL MEMORIAL
Flamingo Las Vegas, 3555 Las Vegas Boulevard South
A bronze plaque memorial to legendary gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel can be found in the garden at the Flamingo Las Vegas. Siegel, who founded the original Flamingo Hotel in 1946, was “whacked” in his Beverly Hills mansion in 1947.

CRAZY GIRLS SCULPTURE

Riviera Hotel & Casino, 2901 Las Vegas Boulevard South
The award-winning, “cast-from-life” bronze Crazy Girls sculpture at the entrance to the Riviera Hotel & Casino showcases the best “assets” of the talented performers who make up “Las Vegas’ Sexiest Topless Revue.” The Crazy Girls sculpture has evolved over the years into one of the most popular photo ops in Las Vegas.

KING TUT’S TOMB
Luxor Las Vegas, 3900 South Las Vegas Boulevard

Within the luxurious Luxor Las Vegas lies an exact replica of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, which was discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922. Numerous Egyptian artifacts also can be viewed during the 15-minute self-guided walking tour.

LIBERACE MUSEUM
1775 East Tropicana Avenue

Founded in 1979, the Liberace Museum celebrates the life and music of the late, flamboyant entertainer (full name: Wladziu Valentino Liberace), who was known as “Mr. Showmanship.” View Liberace’s pianos, jewelry, costumes, custom car collection (including a hand-painted, red, white and blue Rolls-Royce convertible!), awards, antiques and more.

NEON MUSEUM
425 Fremont Street
Many of the legendary neon signs that once lined the Las Vegas Strip are on display at this fascinating outdoor museum, which lies adjacent to the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas.

PINBALL HALL OF FAME
3330 East Tropicana Avenue
Operated by members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club, the Pinball Hall of Fame houses one of the world’s largest pinball collections. All pinball machines, which range from the 1960s to the present, are available to play (bring your quarters).

STAR TREK: THE EXPERIENCE
Las Vegas Hilton, 3000 Paradise Road
Trekkies, Klingon impersonators and thrill seekers alike will want to check out the interactive Star Trek: The Experience, which includes two lively attractions, BORG Invasion 4D and Klingon Encounter, as well as the History of the Future Museum, Quark’s Bar & Restaurant and a specialty store full of tons of collectibles and memorabilia.

WORLD’S LARGEST GAMBLING SUPERSTORE
800 South Main Street

Take home a unique souvenir of your trip to Las Vegas with a visit to the 8,000-square-foot Gamblers General Store, which features personalized poker chips, roulette wheels, blackjack tables, pai gow sets, dice, playing cards, used slot machines and much more.

 

WORLD’S LARGEST GIFT SHOP
2440 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Just about every type of souvenir can be found at Bonanza Gifts, which bills itself as the “World’s Largest Gift Shop” (since Guinness World Records does not have such a category, we’ll just have to take their word for it!). Whether you’re looking for tacky T-shirts, Rat Pack postcards, Minnetonka moccasins, dice bracelets or classic dealer’s visors, you’ll find it here. Celebrities who have shopped at Bonanza Gifts include Nicholas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Michael Jackson and Carrot Top.

  1. As someone who grew up watching the original Star Trek in syndication and has been a fan of each revisiting of the universe since I would love to visit the Star Trek Experience alone, but the rest of the list is equally intriguing. Thanks for compiling it.
