Liberace Museum
The Liberace Museum was located in Paradise, Nevada, a census-designated place in the Las Vegas Valley. It housed many stage costumes, cars, jewelry, lavishly decorated pianos and numerous citations for philanthropic acts that belonged to the American entertainer and pianist Wladziu Valentino Liberace, better known as Liberace.
The non-profit museum funded the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts. The museum closed to the public on October 17, 2010, due to Las Vegas' sluggish economy and a drop in admissions.

Do Museums Still Matter? | Thought Catalog
I recently visited a museum that will soon close – the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas, which opened 30 years ago to celebrate the memory of Walter Liberace, the first pianist to make a highly lucrative career of parading the stage in ostrich feathers and sequins and who made the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s highest-paid pianist, earning $55,000 per week in the 1950s. Walter Liberace I found it a sad experience, especially as only through the museum did I learn that this easily-mocked man – best-known for outrageous costumes, and who died of AIDS in 1987 – also created a foundation that has given away some $5 million to arts students.
