The World's ONLY Showgirl Museum is in Las Vegas, in a Home and is now on the verge of being denied the right to continue showing this great History to guest's of their home. An "Anonymous" complaint was filed against them stating they Sell Tickets for $10 - $25.00 per person and that there are No Bathrooms.

The Facts are, this business has had a State Business License for ALMOST 6 years and has Never sold any tickets. Being also a Non-Profit, "The Society For The Preservation of Entertainment History", they only request a donation for the preservation and restoration, of the Collection. Everyone associated with this, works for FREE. Also, it should be noted the home has 6 working bathrooms!

Now, the County wants to deny or limit them from having tours! Stating it will negatively effect Traffic and Noise. They also want to limit the amount of tours per month to 4 Total and no more than 10 people at a time! This means if you want to come for a tour and have too many people, Like UNLV Students who have come in the past or others or we have met our quota for the month, then you will be denied, entry! Most tourist take Taxi's and in most cases are driven back to their hotel, as a courtesy, so they will not have to wait the extended time for a Taxi to return!

Each tourist has to make a confirmed appointment and they can NOT just walk-in, they must call for entry. Also, the tours of the Collection which includes over 150 Mannequins wearing costumes from Famous Designers, like BOB MACKIE, PETE MENEFEE, MICHAEL TRAVIS, etc... and Shows from Paris, New York, Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Hollywood and Stage as well as screen!

If you feel this is un-just and would be a bad decision, please help us by voicing your opinion with a signature ( First and Last Name and City & State ) showing support for this Historic Landmark of Las Vegas. The last place to see a Real Showgirl in Las Vegas when, DONN ARDEN'S "JUBILEE" Closes on February 11th, 2016!

    What a shame to deny the public of Las Vegas's true gift, the gift of history. This collection is partly what Vegas was built on and the last of it's kind.
