Where cars became costume
American car culture is like nowhere else. With much of our society designed around the personal auto, cars have become part of our fashion statement and personality. Liberace was a major contributor to this cultural fact, after first taking a car on stage in Las Vegas in 1958, during an automotive convention.
Nowhere in the world are you likely to be seen, photographed, and remembered for your entrance more that at a Las Vegas Strip hotel porte cochere. It’s tradition. It’s literally how we roll.
The car you ride in is part of what you wear. It conveys your taste, sometimes your values, and most of all your attitude.
Liberace Garage is comprised of 5 components:
1. The Exhibits
See the original collection of entrance cars from the stages of Liberace
2. The Event Venue
Book your event, from two guests to two hundred, in the most unique and unexpected setting in Las Vegas.
3. The Elopement Spot
Get married in Liberace’s Rolls Royce, or his giant Fab Egg from the stages of New York and Las Vegas, with our exclusive provider elope.vegas
4. The Classic Rental Fleet
Arrive in style at your event or wedding, or just cruise the Strip to your favorite spots and always make an entrance in classic cars inspired by Liberace and owned by our supporters.
5. The Liberace Museum Store
Fashion, music, car accessories, Las Vegas souvenirs and more. Get outfitted for Vegas!
Among many other innovations, Liberace was first to use automobiles in his stage show. Like the costumes he wore, the cars were adorned like no others in history. Their style and use was at the forefront of celebrity conspicuous consumption by Liberace, 60 years ago.
Much more than just a car museum, Liberace Garage houses the actual cars Liberace used on stage at the Las Vegas Hilton and Radio City Music Hall. Among our collection of cars owned and driven by Liberace are those which were used in the HBO movie “Behind the Candelabra”; his famous London Taxi, with which he was known to pick up friends arriving at the Palm Springs airport; and his convertible bicentennial Rolls Royce out of which he flew upon entering the stage. More of Liberace’s automobiles and related artifacts from the Liberace Museum Collection are also on display, all of which were donated to the Foundation by Liberace himself.
Ticket holders to the Liberace Garage will for a limited time have free access to the adjacent Michael Dezer’s Hollywood Cars Museum, featuring dozens of cars used in Hollywood film. We are very thankful to have Mr. Dezer as the premier sponsor of Liberace Garage.

I remember my parents taking me to see Liberace’s house in Las Vegas, when we arrived, there was a dark metallic green Lincoln Continental limousine in the driveway that had a candelabra over each head-lamp. What ever happened to that car? There was also a white station wagon parked on the street. What happened to that car?
Dear Friends: I am hoping to come to see Liberace’s Garage soon as a birthday present to myself. I was wondering if you have a gift shop? Can I view it on this site? Thank you, Joe Kury II
