Las Vegas' Burlesque Hall of Fame

Once upon a time, you had to drive Route 66 out into the Mojave Desert and find a ranch run by retired burlesque dancer Dixie Evans just to see this collection of historical memorabilia. Now you just have to take yourself to downtown Las Vegas and the Emergency Arts Collective, one long block east of the Fremont Street Experience.

The Burlesque Hall of Fame is full of black-and-white vintage photos from the mid-20th century heyday of burlesque club dancing, both in Vegas and around the world. If you're lucky, a retired dancer might even give you a tour. Definitely check Facebook or call ahead before making a trip here, because the exhibit may move in the near future and its hours are subject to change. Until then, viva Las Vegas, baby!
