Wynn Las Vegas’ Awakening, a more than $120 million show

Wynn Las Vegas introduces a new era of entertainment. Guaranteed to awaken all your senses with the show’s spectacular color, elaborate costumes, music, incredible stage effects, and the narration by two-time Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins, Awakening is an unprecedented spectacle.

Princes Diana: A Tribute Exhibition Inside The Shops at Crystals Las Vegas

This 10,000-square-foot royal exhibit has more than 7,000 artifacts in 12 themed rooms. 

It was designed to transport visitors effortlessly into the life of world-famous royalty through the designer fashions, personal effects and historic items of the “People’s Princess” and family and friends important in her life.

Organizers worked to curate the exhibit from a collection of Diana and British royal memorabilia considered by many to be the world’s most comprehensive—a collection that has taken more than 45 years to assemble. Twelve themed rooms are anchored by three standout collections: “Wedding of the Century,” “Fashion Icon” and “Gone Too Soon: A Memorial.” The exhibition will include a life-size artistic sculpture of the most famous wedding dress in history, nine Diana-worn textiles, historic royal family items and more than 500 original items and personal objects belonging (or relating) to Diana as well as other well-known royals.
