      HAUS OF GAGA / LAS VEGAS Virtual Tour

      Sign in to follow this  

      After telling Graham Norton in 2011: "It's really my dream one day to have all my clothes in a museum somewhere." her dream came true with the unveiling of her own museum to celebrate the second leg of her Las Vegas Residency. HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is an ever-changing experience featuring Lady Gaga’s most iconic fashion pieces from her personal vault spanning more than 10 years of cultural, musical, and fashion reinvention.

      Curated by longtime collaborator and Fashion Director Nicola Formichetti, HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is a space that immerses fans into some of her most iconic moments and allows them to witness never before seen memorabilia.

      HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is located inside Park MGM on the left side of the Park Theater entrance on the casino floor and was formerly the merchandise shop. It has been completely made over into a little monster's heaven and I was lucky enough to visit (several times) right after it opened! Keep scrolling for a full tour of the original exhibit with the exact museum labels - and keep an eye out for updates and changes coming to the evolving experience.

      The experience actually begins outside of the space, before you enter. Outside the store on the right-hand side, there is a display area showcasing her fan favorite "Living" dress from The Monster Ball Tour 2.0. The left-hand side of HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is made up of windows that let you look into the area and see the back side of some pieces.

      Further into HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is a middle section with a Born This Way Foundation donation center that accepts digital donations on several iPads or cash in a donation bin. The experience is free to attend but Lady Gaga askes (as told in concert during ENIGMA) for donations to her foundation as "your gift will help expand the [foundation]'s programming and impact in Las Vegas. Your generous donation means more support for the wellbeing of young people in this city: more research on what they need to thrive, more resources to support their mental health, and more genuine opportunities for them to lead and strengthen their communities."

      Beside the donation center is the most iconic outfit of the exhibit - THE meat dress! The now jerky dress has been on display before in the touring "Women Who Rock" exhibit but it has never been seen before with the matching hat and boots!
