Seniors know more than anyone that Vegas isn’t as cheap as it once was. Over the years and decades, affordable food, drink, and entertainment options have slowly evaporated, leaving your wallet a bit lighter.
I was recently updating my article detailing which Vegas hotels offer a discount to seniors and figured a similar post detailing attraction discounts would be helpful.
For each senior discount mentioned below, I’ll be sure to link to the offer so that you can book, or ensure it’s still in effect before making the trip.
Senior Discounts on the Las Vegas Strip
A $2 senior discount is offered to those 65 or older.
Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay: An oasis in the middle of the desert, Shark Reef gives visitors the opportunity to “walk the ocean floor” and touch sea life. The entire experience is a visual feast for the eyes.
The attraction also offers a $2 senior discount.
Princess Diana & The Royals Exhibition: Found within Crystals near Aria, Diana is a museum attraction that displays an abundance of artifacts from the life of Princess Diana and others in the Royal Family, which included handwritten correspondence.
A $4 discount for seniors aged 55+ is also offered.
I recently visited the Princess Diana Exhibit and was impressed by the educational value of the attraction – If you’re a “royal watcher”, slot this into your itinerary.
Other Notable Senior Discounts in Las Vegas
The Neon Museum: Those that have visited Vegas over the decades are sure to get a kick out of the Neon Museum, which displays signs from earlier incarnations of Las Vegas.
If you opt for a boneyard tour, I’d suggest paying up for the guided tour. While it’s a tad more expensive, you’ll get so much more out of your experience.
I would also recommend doing their “Double the Glow” experience which allows you to participate in both a boneyard tour and their “Brilliant! Jackpot” light show.
Those aged 65+ are able to obtain discounts of $4-$5 (depending on the tour/show) when booking online.
The Atomic Museum: A short drive from the Strip, the Atomic Testing Museum explores the origins of nuclear weapons, their use, and the history of testing in Nevada.
Seniors aged 65+ are entitled to a $2 discount at the attraction.
I recently visited the Atomic Museum and was impressed by the wealth of knowledge on display and how it was presented.
Las Vegas Natural History Museum: Located 5 minutes from Fremont Street, the Museum of Natural History offers a $2 discount to senior citizens.
There, you’ll have the opportunity to explore exhibits dedicated to dinosaurs, African animal life, marine life, and Ancient Egypt among others.
Springs Preserve: A short drive from Fremont Street, Springs Preserve is a collection of attractions offered at one low price.
The sprawling complex is home to a playground, a splash pad, a butterfly tent, botanical gardens, the Origen Museum, The Nevada State Museum, WaterWorks, and Boomtown 1905.
During my recent visit to Springs Preserve, I found WaterWorks, which tells the story of how NV manages scarce water resources, and Boomtown 1905, which is a mock boomtown city that you’re invited to explore, to be most interesting.
Best yet, Springs Preserve offers a modest senior discount for those buying their tickets in person.
Hopefully, I was able to help you find a senior discount in Las Vegas that aligns with your interests and itinerary!
While discounts offered to seniors aren’t often huge per se, they certainly add up! Every penny counts nowadays.
I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
