The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

(4.3/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I went there at 12pm. Very strong sun and super hot. Staff is very nice. They'll tell you the history about Vegas. This is the most interesting part for me. In my opinion I am not excited or interested in these signs.
  • We were only in Vegas for the day and decided to check out this place. Totally worth it!!!! So informative. We really learned a lot about the history of Vegas through this tour. Our tour guide was so lively and informative. I could not stop taking pics! Also one of the best gift shops I've ever seen. Do not miss this place!
  • Just loved this place, with great stories and history of Vegas of the past, told by the volunteers who run it. I hope they can keep the funding going for this overlook attraction in Vegas. I would it's a must, away from the hassle and bustle of the strip, as downtown has more character and soul and is True Las Vegas
  • I definitely recommend visiting the Neon Boneyard while you are in Vegas! It was a wonderful piece of history that allows you to see Vegas from another perspective. Our tour guide Beverly was so sweet and so informative! She was passionate about making a lasting impression on her visitors. Another must see in the busy town of Las Vegas, Nevada!!
  • An interesting and informative experience. The guide was funny and full of stories. Very pleased to have attended the tour.
