Las Vegas is home to some of the most interesting, entertaining, and educational museums in the world. Here are five museums worth visiting:
1. Real Bodies
You can learn much about the human body from Real Bodies, a vast anatomical display at Bally’s. The exhibits are from actual human specimens, and guests understand more about body features, organs, birth, and death from this museum. There are also detailed dissections of different body parts and art installations, giving a better understanding of the human body. Guests also learn many different scientific facts on physiology, psychology, and the impact of disease on the body; for example, the coronavirus.
2. Mob Museum
One popular museum in Las Vegas is the Mob Museum. It’s a big museum along Fremont Street with great historical significance to Las Vegas. Here, you can learn more about organized crime and its impact on society over the years. The artifacts sit on four floors, so take your time to explore all the fascinating displays. Some videos help put things into perspective, and interactive exhibits enhance the experience. After a few hours of exploring the museum, head to the basement for cocktails from the speakeasy.
3. Aria Fine Art
The Aria Fine Art Collection brings a more traditional approach to the museum experience with its exhibits. Here you can find large sculptures, paintings from various artists, and unique figures spread across the property. It’s a bonus that guests of the Aria enjoy, but anyone can visit the resort and marvel at these beautiful displays. It helps that it’s right on the Strip, and you can include this stopover in your itinerary for the day as you explore the city.
4. Titanic, The Artifact Exhibition
The sinking of the Titanic is one of the greatest tragedies of all time. You might have read a book or article about it, watched a documentary, and other media about the ship. Las Vegas offers an opportunity for guests to see real remains from the shipwreck from the Titanic Artifact Exhibition. Apart from the various recovered artifacts, there are also modern recreations of some of the ship’s rooms that give guests an idea of what the interior of the Titanic was like. Millions of people have visited this museum, a beautiful place to explore during the day.
