Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum – Boulder City, Nevada


Located in Boulder City, Nevada, between Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam, Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum is dedicated to preserving the history and craft of horror movie props, prosthetics, and other special makeup effects.

Professional special makeup effects artist Tom Devlin showcases some of the most memorable stories and characters in cinematic history. The environment is part history museum and part haunted house. Life-size replicas of  Frankenstein’s Monster, Jason, Freddy Kruger, Pennywise, and other horror mainstays stand alongside recreations of sets from The Exorcist and Halloween. Screen-used props tell the story of horror’s evolution and provide an introduction to such iconic horror-movie actors such as Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, and Boris Karloff.

The museum is currently offering a “Midnight R.I.P Experience” which includes hotel pickup and dropoff to and from Las Vegas in a custom hearse (naturally) for 2 to 6 people as well as a private guided tour of the museum with Tom.
