The Haunted Museum offers a one-of-a-kind wedding experience.
Renowned paranormal pioneer and Travel Channel Ghost Adventures’ Host, Zak Bagans, invites you to celebrate your momentous day at his monument to the spirit world.
An event venue like no other-The Haunted Museum is not a wedding chapel but a historic locale and a museum filled with priceless relics. An iconic setting!
The museum and its pristine grounds of the 11,000 square foot Wengert Mansion are reflections of Zak Bagans’ tireless efforts of exploration and curation. Bagans’ has used every inch of the 1938 Tudor Revival-style mansion, the former residence of prominent Las Vegan Cyril Wengert, to artfully display his macabre masterpieces.
The Wengert Mansion has provided a backdrop for Las Vegas history for generations. Cyril Wengert constructed the Mansion for his large family while he was helping to build the dusty desert town into the thriving destination it is today. The property’s beauty and historic integrity provides you the perfect place to create your own history as you wed or renew your vows.
The museum provides a hauntingly beautiful setting for your wedding. The 80-year old mansion’s distinctive architecture and carefully groomed lawns call to you and your immortal beloved to exchange your vows within.
