The Burlesque Hall of Fame has joined Museums for All, a program offered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits. The program allows free admission to the museum for a visitor and up to three family members on display of a valid SNAP, WIC, or Medicaid card.
Participating in Museums for All is part of the Burlesque Hall of Fame’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences. The people whose stories we tell were mostly working women who found on burlesque stages a career that offered the opportunity for financial independence and artistic self-expression. Their lives have meaning for everyone, and we want to make sure that the price of admission is not a barrier to people being able to learn about these impressive performers.
The Burlesque Hall of Fame joins four other Las Vegas museums in the Museums for All program – the Neon Museum, the Atomic Testing Museum, and the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, and the Springs Preserve, along with nearby Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum – making Las Vegas an important hub for the program. Similar free and reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 500 participating museums across the country.
Visitors can make reservations at bhof.link/admission – simply select the Museums for All option for yourself and up to 3 family members. You will be asked to present your SNAP or WIC EBT card or your Medicaid ID when you check in. Walk-ins will also be accepted, subject to occupancy restrictions.
