Liberace lives on in Vegas!

Went to the Liberace museum while in Vegas this Father's Day wekend. A three star event.

The museum is in two buildings in a little strip mall. A church group was touring at the same time. One building traces his history and has the cars, pianos and candlabras. The other building has his jewelry and costumes with a gift shop and cafeteria.

Liberace was a genial entertainer who helped popularize classical music and pop music standards of the pre-1950 period. A favorite of women for his nice manners, pearly white teeth and wavy hair. He was also a very talented piano player! They did not realize he was gay in those days!

The museum says very little about his gay side except to note he died of Aids complications in 1987. He kept his private life secret, though many knew the truth.

The museum is a non-profit part of the foundation that supports scholarships for talented college students in the arts.

The tourist magazines have a two for one coupon to cut the entrance price in half. I recommend this trip!

Liberace gay?!
Get Out!
He was the Elton John of the day.
Far more entertaining than Lawrence Welk.
