The Erotic Heritage Museum, located on Industrial Road across from the Trump Hotel, has been open to the public since 2008. Its pink and purple neon sign that lights up in the dark invites visitors to a museum that pays tribute to the history of erotica in all forms and how they impact society today. Besides the erotic painting and sculpture on display, the museum offers a number of exhibits for its guests to interact with, which includes a collection of erotic objects from Catherine the Great and the world’s largest erotic bicycle.
The Neon Museum, also known as the Neon Boneyard, preserves iconic signage from Las Vegas’ past. From the iconic Stardust lettering to the original signage of the Moulin Rouge, the museum allows visitors to explore how Las Vegas went from a small mining stop on the way to California to “the entertainment capital of the world.” Be sure to book your tickets in advance; there are a limited number of tours available throughout the week, and they sell out fast.
