The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

4.2
Las Vegas is the world capital of neon art, and The Neon Museum is there to preserve and display some of it. The museum refurbishes old and discarded neon signs and tells the history of the city through them. Some of the restored signs are displayed in various locations in downtown Las Vegas, but most are located in the museum’s outdoor exhibition area, known as the Boneyard. Here you can take a tour of iconic signs, such as the signs for Caesar's Palace and Stardust casinos. All the tours are guided and should be booked in advance. Bad weather could cause tours to be canceled. Be careful of rusty metal and broken glass in the Boneyard area. Work out when and for how long to visit The Neon Museum and other Las Vegas attractions using our handy Las Vegas trip maker website.

  • Always go at night. It's a neon museum. DUH. Seriously though, I went here last year in December and it was delightful. Specifically, our tour guide was delightful and he made the entire experience so enjoyable. If you have a choice (and if he still works there) get Sweeney (sp?) as your guide through this. The fact that this gentleman has such wonderful energy and is genuinely enthusiastic about the history of these lights, made me wish we could have stuck around longer at each stop in the tour instead of making sure we didn't get caught up to by another group. A teacher that clearly loves and is interested in the thing they're teaching you about is the best kind. They make you want to learn more and keep your attention naturally. You'll learn a lot about the history of Las Vegas itself and its neon lights, while also having a blast checking out this little resting place for many of the signs from the city's most iconic casinos. Especially if Sweeney is your guide. Get Sweeney!
  • Soooo neat! We purchased the combo package -- guided tour and brilliant show. While the guided tour can feel a bit long and heavy with facts, if you're a history buff you'll enjoy it. Just seeing the old signs and learning about their history and how local Vegas and Nevada culture developed was fascinating. Brilliant is amazing!! It's hard to describe, but just go! It's a remarkable show and celebration of art and life and humanity!
