Mention Las Vegas and most people automatically think of casinos, but underneath the glitz and ringing bells of slot machines, there is a lot to do in this town. The next time you are in town and want to take things down a notch, head to one of these museums to soak up a little history, Vegas style.
The Mob Museum
This museum is a must if you love Vegas because, let’s be honest — if not for organized crime, Vegas wouldn’t be what it is today. The museum has exhibits and artifacts that cover the history of organized crime and law enforcement’s efforts to stop it.
The Neon Museum
While this museum may be kitschy, it is worth checking out to see the amazing collection of Las Vegas memorabilia on display. This outdoor attraction is the proud home of some of the original Las Vegas hotel signs, like the Frontier, the Stardust and the Algiers.
The National Atomic Testing Museum
Operating in association with the Smithsonian Institute, this museum showcases memorabilia and catalogs the history of the atomic testing program in the Nevada dessert.
Las Vegas Natural History Museum
This attraction is an all-around natural history museum showcasing everything from dinosaurs and African mammals to ancient Egyptian artifacts.
The Haunted Museum
Zak Bagan’s The Haunted Museum is one of those quirky experiences that is very Vegas, which is why it made its way onto our list. This little spot is home to artifacts associated with hauntings and paranormal activity, such as the infamous Dybbuk Box. Since many of the artifacts are reported to be haunted themselves, the museum requires visitors to sign a waiver before entering.

Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
