The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

4.3
#4 of 22 in Museums in Las Vegas
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.

  • 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 took the 8 am tour in July. The 1 hour tour was interesting but hot. Suggest that the tour guide offer free bottles of water. Loved the free umbrellas to guard against the shade. Next time I will take the night time tour.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
