The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

4.4
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.

  • Excellent experience and well worth the ticket price. A few helpful tips: - 7pm is the best time to visit! The heat is much more tolerable & you'll get the best of both worlds. You can snap some great photos in front of the signs & you'll see some lit up. - wear shoes you're comfortable getting dirty, the museum is outdoor and gravel so it’s a little dusty. - Buy tickets in advance. We saw multiple people walk-in trying to snag tickets last minute and they were sold out! The customer service and guides were fantastic! You can tell they are truly passionate about neon signs and they will answer all questions you have with remarkable details! The only tip I would have is the guides use little speakers on the tour to talk into which is helpful but our guide was a bit hard to hear in the back. It may have just been she needed to crank the volume up a bit more? They share really interesting and fun facts so you'll definitely want to hear them! Highly recommend checking the Neon Museum out!
  • Such a cool experience. Like others have said, try to book a tour when it starts to get dark so you can experience the signs during the day and then lit at night. Our guide was great and it was an afternoon that my wife and I still speak about. Bring water! It gets HOT while on tour. Try to get there a little early as well to ensure they don't get fully booked. Museum was in walking distance of the mob museum which we walked to after. Lots of fun that day!
  • Awesome stop the day after we got married. Small but great place. Definitely a worthwhile stop. The guided tour is interesting but I wish they offered an express walk through because the heat is no joke. I understand people need supervision with the artifacts but a fast route for older people, people with disabilities, or people with small kids would probably be popular.
  • Great place to go to see old neon signs from long ago! Our tour guide Gizelle was awesome. She was friendly, well spoken and full of knowledge! Ask for her, she is GREAT! Evening visits are the best. We went at 7pm and it was perfect for seeing the beautiful signage. Worth the money and it goes for a great cause!
  • One of the few places in Vegas where you can see the history of the city. We went at night and got the full tour from Giselle and she was fun and informative. Also went to Brilliant and it's definitely a must see! They bring old signs from eras past to life and it's simply incredible. Wish I could give six stars!
