The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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. Our Las Vegas vacation trip planner makes visiting The Neon Museum and other Las Vegas attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very interesting tour of many of the old neon and lighted signs from many hotels and casinos and businesses that don't exist anymore. A trip down memory lane. Fun and informative.  more »

  • One hour long tour, buy tickets ahead of time as the slots fill up for every tour. It is hard to get a night tour, we ended up during the day which was still fine but no lights are on to see at that t...  more »

  • The history is awesome. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable. Everybody I dealt with on my visit was highly professional and extremely courteous. I loved our tour and guide. I felt I got my money's worth and got plenty of amazing photos. Their selection of awesome nostalgic items in their gift shop made my wallet lighter, but my heart happier. Thanks Neon Museum for a great experience.
  • Neat little place off the strip. The thing that made this tour was the tour guide. Very very knowledgeable and funny. Its about 1 hour during the day tour so be prepared for some Vegas heat, but they give you umbrellas which is smart. Wish we had booked the night tour well in advance but this was a last minute excursion away from the casinos so we didn't find a slot open during our stay. Perhaps next time. Highly recommend to hear and see some history.
  • Really great experience! It was hot for sure, but they provide umbrellas for shade and the guide continuously asked if people needed water or shade. Really knowledgeable guide and super funny! Great attitude for being in the heat! Definitely want to come back for the night version and really cool items in the gift shop!
  • Fantastic one hour tour. A place full of history. Would recommend the evening tour although more lights are of than on. The museum is working on expansion so I'm looking forward to come back in the future.
  • We had a great time on this 1 hour guided tour. Not only do you get to see iconic images of Vegas, you learn their history and Vegas' history at the same time. A few warnings and suggestions. The tours are guided and you must schedule a time. The tour guide said they can fill up 3 weeks before a tour easy. Each tour only allows 20 people, no more no less. You can choose between the daytime or nighttime tour. It was the fall and good weather, so we chose the daytime tour based on the guides suggestion. Glad we did! In the full sun, you can see all the original colors of the signs. And you can actually see all the signs! In the night time tour, only 7 of the signs light up, and in their glory they can take away from the other signs. So choose your timer wisely. We preferred the daytime. That being said, If it is summer time, the daytime may not be the best choice!
