Gene Simmons, the bassist and co-lead singer of Kiss, is working on bringing a Kiss museum to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Set to open in March 2022, the Kiss-themed attraction will feature “hundreds and hundreds” of items from Simmons’ personal collection, according to Blooloop.
“I was in Las Vegas to start working on the Kiss museum, which is really just my collection, because I’ve got a half-century of Kiss stuff,” said Simmons in an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal. “I want the fans to see it.”
Simmons also shared that an expansion is planned Kiss by Monster Mini Golf, which moved into the Rio’s Masquerade Village in February 2016.
“It’s going to be breathtaking,” said Simmons. “I was there the first day, as my stuff started to come in. We have three tractor-trailers full of stuff, and it’s going to be spectacular. The fans are going to dig it. You can play golf, you can have your photo taken, you can take videos of yourself onstage with Kiss, and then go visit my private collection.”
The Kiss museum will be attached to the mini golf offering, and will have items on display including costumes, stage props, and gold and platinum albums.
