Summer at The Punk Rock Museum

When it opened just over a year ago in Las Vegas, The Punk Rock Museum became home to the world’s most expansive collection of punk rock artifacts, fliers, photos, clothing, instruments, handwritten lyrics and more. In addition to offering a unique look at the last 45-plus years of punk rock, this summer the museum offers a wide array of exciting events, tour guides and more.

Guests of The Punk Rock Museum are taken on a journey to the beginnings of punk rock, through various countries and eras. At every corner, there is something to see and experience, from the jam room where visitors are welcome to pick up and play a guitar used by one of their favorite musicians to a replica of Social Distortion’s recording studio. Visitors can also say “I do” at the museum, grab a drink at The Triple Down bar or get the ultimate souvenir–a tattoo, right on site. Plus, bands are known to stop by the Pennywise Garage for an intimate performance.
