Las Vegas is known as the Entertainment Capital of the World for a reason: there's something to entertain visitors of all types. While it's true most people come to the city to gamble or see one of its lavish productions, there are plenty of attractions to entertain and educate guests as well.
For those who miss the "good old days," the Neon Museum proudly displays the signs of Las Vegas' past in a two-acre boneyard downtown. Also downtown is one of the city's newest "hit" attractions, The Mob Museum, which tells the story of organized crime in America and the brave men who fought against it.
Got kids? The DISCOVERY Children's Museum recently moved into a beautiful new building next to the Smith Center, while the Las Vegas Natural History Museum is sure to impress younger guests with its 35-foot-tall T-Rex. The Nevada State Museum also recently relocated next to the family-friendly Springs Preserve.
There's plenty of culture amidst the glitz and glamor of the Strip, too, including one of Las Vegas' most popular attractions: Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Art aficionados are sure to love the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, while The Chuck Jones Experience will entertain animation lovers both young and old. Classic car enthusiasts, meanwhile, should race on over to world's largest classic car showroom: The Auto Collections at The Quad.
