Make Mother’s Day a family affair and visit one of Las Vegas’ many attractions. Several local exhibits are offering discounts on admission in honor of your mom.

Through May 12, mom’s wallet photos (or camera phone photos) will earn her $4 off at 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic in the Venetian. All she has to do is flash a photo of her adorable spawn at the box office. She was probably going to do that anyway so why not get a nice discount out of it.

“We know that mothers are proud to carry around pictures of their kids, and now they can show them off to receive a discount,” said Tom Zaller, CEO and President of Imagine Exhibitions, Inc.

Also at the Venetian, moms receive free admission at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas on Mother’s Day with the purchase of a child or adult general admission ticket. All the moms back home will be super impressed when they see your Mother’s Day pics with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jamie Foxx and Bradley Cooper.

Bodies… The Exhibition at the Luxor, meanwhile, welcomes mothers-to-be with a complimentary pass during Mother’s Day weekend, May 10 – 12. The exhibition, which showcases 13 whole-body specimens from China and more than 260 organs and partial body specimens, includes an Embryonic and Fetal Development Gallery, which may give moms-to-be some insight into their growing bellies.


Buy her a Ziegfeld ring at Tiffany & Co. While you're at it, buy me one too.

If mom has expensive taste, grab your shopping list and head over to Crystals at CityCenter — maybe even take her with you and make a day of it. She’s sure to enjoy the mall’s stunning architecture, gardens, water displays … and, of course, that whole being showered with gifts thing.

Snap up a gorgeous Ziegfeld ring made with freshwater pearls and black onyx set in sterling silver from Tiffany & Co.

Eco-chic moms will love Stella McCartney’s stunning new prismatic Plexi Clutch, made entirely from sustainable materials.

During Mother’s Day weekend (May 10 – 12), guests who purchase a framed photograph for their mother from Rodney Lough Jr. Gallery at Crystals will receive a complimentary copy of the photo for themselves.


Book your family's queen on a Desert Princess cruise.

Mom will feel like she’s walking on water when you surprise her with a  cruise aboard a whimsical Mississippi River-style paddle-wheel vessel on Lake Mead. Whether it’s a Brunch Cruise or an Evening Dinner Cruise, she will embark on a memorable voyage aboard the Desert Princess in the picturesque Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The brunch cruise  includes home-style brunch buffet selections such as eggs Benedict, bacon, French toast, homemade hash browns and healthy salads as well as sparkling Champagne, fresh orange juice and pastries ($45 per person). Book now!

Evening Dinner Cruises include signature entrees such as slow-roasted prime rib, fresh salmon, herb-infused chicken and generously stuffed four-cheese “grandioli” pasta as well as soup, salad, garlic bread, garlic mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and a surprise dessert ($61.95 per person). Book now!

“Our cruises are memorable adventures with impeccable customer service,” said Earl Jobson, general sales manager for Lake Mead Cruises. “Our Champagne Brunch and … Dinner Cruises are awesome dining experiences, comparable to upscale restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip.”

With a hospitable staff of servers attending to her every need, mom won’t have to lift a finger. All she has to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
