Arrived for our tour at the Las Vegas Showgirl Museum and our fabulous host was Grant who welcomed us into the museum with a pleasant personality and was very charming and enthusiastic about the collection in the museum! Grant knows everything there is to know about the Vegas shows, the showgirls, their outfits, the industry, and their history. We were so impressed with Grant and the tour that we highly recommend it for everyone! This is a beautiful, spectacular, well curated collection featuring the best of the Vegas showgirl shows and so much more! Grant is very meticulous and detailed and has such wonderful entertaining stories about the shows and the industry; he was very impressive and we loved him and the collection! This tour is a MUST SEE in Vegas! 10 Stars out of 10 Stars and then some!
I don’t exaggerate when I say this museum is one of the most incredible places I have ever been, anywhere. The quality and size of Grant’s collection (or at least what is on display currently - there is always more he is restoring or storing elsewhere) alone is jaw dropping and well worth the trip - there are incredible costumes, artifacts and props everywhere you turn in this beautiful home. It doesn’t matter if you’re specifically interested in showgirls, entertainment, Hollywood, costume design, fashion, general history - there is just so much for everyone here! But what truly sets the Showgirl Museum apart is Grant himself. He is an incredible host and tour guide: charming, funny and incredibly knowledgeable, he teaches through facts, personal experiences and anecdotes in a way that is accessible to absolutely anyone - regardless of what background knowledge you have entering the museum, you are guaranteed to leave with so much more. On top of being an amazing tour guide with a brain like an encyclopedia, he is an incredibly talented designer, producer, conservator-restorer, and clearly respected member of the industry and community - it is really a treat to be able to experience this incredible collection with someone so passionate and dedicated. He is also extremely generous with his time - he spent over 4 hours with my dad and I! We didn’t realize how much time had passed until we left! I rarely write reviews, but the Showgirl Museum is a truly special experience - and difficult to describe in words. I urge anyone and everyone to visit at least once or donate if possible to keep this amazing production going. I will definitely be back, and hope to see the expansion into a public venue soon. Thank you Grant and everyone involved for all that you do to preserve the glitz and glamour of Vegas!!
This museum is one of the most amazing experiences someone could ever have. Grant Philipo is a living legend, and his collection is an absolute joy and privilege. There is so much love and care that goes into not only the restoration of gorgeous original garments and showpieces, but also the displays and info frames for each costume. Not to mention, Grant has a showgirl themed snack room stocked with treats just in case you didn't already mistake the museum for heaven. If you're a fan of theater, art, history, fashion, or design, then you absolutely positively cannot miss this amazing collection.
This collection of showgirl memorabilia and artifacts is mind blowing, Grant's expertise and knowledge is astounding, this is by far the best museum experience in all of Vegas. You do not want to miss this on your trip. Pre book your time and he will take care of the rest.
