Crystal, Nevada: Brothel Art Museum

Is it a brothel, or an art museum? It's a brothel, but they heavily promote a "museum" -- a room with walls full of photos and news clips.

Billboard for Brothel Art Museum. Brothel Art Museum

Passed a little sign for the turnoff on Hwy 160, and thought it was a feeble lure out to one of Nevada's legal brothels. Then further south we spotted this large billboard in Pahrump:

"The oldest tourist attraction in southern Nevada... the only museum of its kind in the world!"

So it's either a legitimate museum, or part of an elaborate excuse for patrons. "Honey, I wasn't cavorting at a brothel, I was visiting the Brothel Art Museum."
