    This is a good exhibit. When you start they give you a passenger's profile and then you can check if you lived at the end. There are lots of artifacts. There's even a piece of the ship!

    This museum in the downtown area tells the story of Burlesque. A docent explained the history of burlesque timeline and described the other exhibits. The costumes on display were amazing and I enjoyed looking at the various artifacts. This is a small museum, but very well done.

    If you're in McCarran airport and have some time to spare, this baby museum is packed with tons of Las Vegas aviation history.

    The displays are educational and each one is packed with lots of reading to keep you busy. The visuals included pilot uniforms, airport and airplane parts artifacts, tons of vintage black and white aviation pictures. This is a nice little stop if you have about 15-30 minutes to spare. The readings are definitely more interesting than the displays themself.

    The C & D gate TSA entrances are close by and can be seen from the museum. It's definitely worth checking out once if you're in the McCarran airport. Safe travels!

    Worth a stop if you are into such things. Fair amount of content. Decent layout and housed clearly in the right structure. I almost skipped the VR Tour included but am glad I didn’t. It’s a good recap if once again, you really have any interest in such dry topics.

    This curation of great scouting memorabilia covers scouting from around the world including BSA, Girl Scouts/guides and more.

    Having every council represented and every Scouting award through the beginning is most impressive!

    Plan on an hour or two and make reservations before you come. Entry is @$10 a person but well worth it.

    84 countries are represented and this is a must for any scout or Scouter while the visit Las Vegas.

    Amazing Experience!! Was given inside info relating to the fashions and life of a showgirl. Able to view beautifully constructed garments up close and hear the story behind some of these gorgeous pieces of art.

    Great place to check out the newest spy gadgets. Has something for everyone! Old retired spy gadgets in their museum section as well as new spy gadgets who want to stay on top of the game. Novelty stuff for kids, self defense product, listening devices, GPS trackers, nanny cams, swords, lie detectors, theft detection, etc. Fun little store for those who are into the spy world!
