The destination offers an abundance of cultural experiences, from the Las Vegas Arts District, and unique exhibits on the Strip, to annual events and beyond. Here is just a taste of Las Vegas’ art and culture scene. 

Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery Las Vegas at Caesars Palace 

  • With two locations in The Forum Shops, art enthusiasts can encounter original works from the likes of Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and more. The institution features the largest collection of the latter’s ceramic works in the world. 

Paradox Museum 

  • One of the newest museums to open in the destination, this space offers a collection of mind-twisting and eye-catching exhibits. Highlights include the reversed room, wherein everything is upside-down, and the paradox tunnel, where your perception of gravity will be challenged. Stop by the gift shop for fun and educational souvenirs! 

The Arts Factory 

  • This longstanding building of galleries, boutiques and performing arts spaces is the non-official hub of the downtown Arts District. Its 30,000-square-foot interior is met with 20,000 square feet of outdoor space, which especially comes alive during the monthly First Friday arts festival. Get a drink at its resident 18bin bar and interact with local creatives! 

Downtown Las Vegas Arts District 

  • The destination’s dedicated district to the arts offers all kinds of activities and amusements. First Friday, a monthly arts festival, offers opportunities to peruse galleries and street artists’ work while enjoying local food trucks, entertainment and more. Preview Thursday provides a more relaxed vibe, allowing visitors to interact with the artists showing their work. The area also has multiple food and beverage options – like The Garden Las Vegas, which offers craft cocktails, light bites and even a drag queen show on certain nights. 

The Beverly Theater 

  • One of the most recent venues to open in historic Downtown Las Vegas, this spot is a film house, concert venue and storytelling arena combo. Its diverse schedule includes indie film screenings, live music and more.

The Smith Center

  • This gorgeous, art deco-inspired campus might be a nod to the city’s past – it was based on the Hoover Dam after all, but its programming speaks to the future. The calendar features music, dance, comedy and more. The annual Toyota Broadway Las Vegas Series always promises spectacular shows, with this season including Les Misérables, Chicago and Come From Away – and that’s just a taste!  

The Neon Museum 

  • Possibly Las Vegas’ most iconic museum, this space houses the signage from yesteryear – and tells its fabulous stories while being visually fabulous. Explore over 250 neon signs in the Neon Boneyard, and enjoy the Brilliant! light projection exhibit and learn more about Las Vegas’ extremely interesting past. 

Wink World at AREA15 

  • Be mesmerized – and maybe get lost – by this installation at the arts complex, brought to you by the chief creative officer of the Blue Man Group. The space features six infinity-mirror rooms equipped with strobe lights and other sound and motion effects. 

Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival

  • The most well-known names in music aren’t the only headliners at this festival, as renowned artists create visual spectacles that stay up long after the crowds go home. The murals and installations you’ll see here will be just as fantastic as that full concert-ending set. Don’t miss arts collective Meow Wolf’s “Party in the Suburbs,” a mini-block party with multidimensional art and a variety of performances. 

Electric Daisy Carnival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

  • Feel the PLUR – peace, love, unity and respect – at this annual electronic music festival featuring the world’s biggest DJs and electronic acts. The event always features larger-than-life stages and multiple art installations, and you can’t turn a corner without having an Instagram moment. It is a carnival, after all, so don’t forget to go for a ride. The Ferris wheel at sunrise is extra special!
