Tucked away off to the side of the Venetian Hotel… in a rather obscure location, is the Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas. Considering most of the Tussauds that I’ve seen stick out like a sore thumb, it was a bit surprising this one seemed so muted. Or perhaps everything around it was just that much louder.
Trying to find a history on this particular museum is like finding a needle in a haystack. It’s a fairly recent edition to the Las Vegas strip. The building (with the Venetian) stands on the site of the original Sands Hotel… made famous by the Rat Pack.
Of the Tussauds in North America, this is number three of four on the visit list. The one remaining: Washington D.C.
