Museum Fiasco located inside AREA15 at 3215 S. Rancho Dr., Las Vegas’ first Kunsthalle-style museum, is now open, with tickets available to experience ‘Cluster,’ an award-winning installation by Playmodes Studio.

A reimagined museum designed to cultivate an immersive sound and light experience, Museum Fiasco is located on the mezzanine of AREA15, the world’s first purpose-built experiential art and entertainment complex. Conceptualized and designed by Corner Bar Management founder, Ryan Doherty, the 5,000-square-foot gallery will showcase futuristic exhibits, audio-visual experiences, art and hospitality in a space that will foster a sense of connectivity for visitors.

Led by museum director, Doherty, Museum Fiasco is a museum experience based on the German Kunsthalle model, which is a non-collection-based museum hosting rotating exhibits.

There are currently 14 known Kunsthalle-style museums in the United States, and Museum Fiasco will be the first in Nevada.

The museum’s first exhibit, ‘Cluster,’ pushes boundaries in light, technology and creativity in a large-scale audio-visual experience, presenting a dynamic, interactive show that engages the senses.

The virtuosic play tells a story through a collection of lights that strobe in harmony with the extraordinary soundscape. The 360-degree experience explores the chaotic feeling of being inside the kernel of a glitchy computer processor.

Museum Fiasco is open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday, 3 p.m. to midnight on Saturday and 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Cluster is anticipated to sell out throughout the coming months and reservations in advance are highly encouraged.

Tickets are available on the AREA15 website for $25 for adults, $15 for children ages 12 and under and $20 for Las Vegas locals, military and seniors.

More information is available on the website.
