Just returned from a trip to Vegas. I absolutely love visiting that place. It was my 4th trip there. I thought I would share some Marilyn-related things in case anyone else is going soon. If anyone is looking for a Marilyn slot machine - there was one left at the Mirage just behind the high limit slot area. It is a dollar machine.
2-for-1 coupon here). It was a lot more fun than I expected. I didn't realize that the statues were out in the open and you were encouraged to pose with them. I assumed they would all be off limits and you'd look from a distance. That was not the case as you can see. They even had props available - hence the bunny ears :)
They have a gift shop when you get to the end of the exhibit (looks like you can access it whether or not you take the tour) that had some Marilyn goodies. There was coffee mugs, tote bags, calendars and magnets. I picked up a book and a plastic drink cup.
In the Caesars Palace Forum Shops you can find a memorabilia store called Antiquities. It is filled with framed autographs. They also have a small Marilyn goodie section with cups, photos, postcards, clocks, etc. I noticed a really beautiful framed Marilyn piece on the wall. They don't allow you to take photos so I couldn't get a pic of it. It is a letter from Marilyn to Milton Greene. She has signed it as President of Marilyn Monroe Productions. It is regarding giving him a copy of the Prince and the Showgirl film. It is framed with great photos from the right time period, including one of her and Milton. The top has a great graphic of her signature with the red lips. I was in love with it but the price tag was $8000!!! I didn't win big while I was there so it is still on the wall :)
