I toured the Neon Museum while I was in Las Vegas recently. I enjoyed the history told by our tour guide and seeing the neon signs. They only have a few that are restored so far but they are working to have more. I loved seeing the Stardust sign lit up again. The people there were friendly and wanted to... More

I've been to Vegas many times over the years and had heard that there was a place where old neon signs were retired. It was great to finally get the chance to go. It was a lot of fun seeing signs that I had actually seen when they were in use. The volunteer that gave us the tour was great,... More

Enjoyable and friendly staff. Tour guide was a little much, but we hug back and really enjoyed the Museum. I also think the funds go to a great project also.

We went on a tour on the neon bone yard on this trip to Vegas and we're really glad we did. Our tour guide gave a nice history and narrative on the signs that they had in the outdoor museum. It is very hot there, so go early or go late. We did a 9 pm tour, so they had... More

This was an interesting tour and offered a great look at the history of Vegas. The reception area is from the original la concha motel and is a welcoming airy space to wait for your tour to start. There is a good merchandise selection including some great Vegas history books. Our volunteer guide was really enthusiastic and engaging. Most of... More

Visiting Las Vegas in the summer is always hot, so if you're visiting the Neon Boneyard book an early appointment, bring water, and an umbrella for shade. Interesting history, cool signs. Only four signs have been restored (actually light up) so if going at night, don't get disappointed. It's a neat attraction and just one more cool thing to see... More

This is a must see for anyone coming to vegas. You are taken on a tour while the tour guide gives historical information about the pieces they have on display. I loved every aspect of it. Definitely go see it during the night time when they have some of the signs on.

When booking a tour for the Neon Museum, the website showed that the tours were sold out. However, we found out that there are 4 walk-in tickets available on a first come, first serve basis. We were staying in town for a while so we were able to go to the museum to pick up the tickets for a future... More

It was neat to see the neon boneyard. We made our reservations for 9 p.m., hoping to see some of them lit up. They aren't able to do this due to the cost to renovate these lights and the amount of power it would take to keep them lit. It was nice to hear the history of the neon signs... More

One of my favorite things we did in Vegas. The guide gave us a very thorough and entertaining history of Vegas as we traveled through the neon signs. You can tell this is a careful and thoughtful preservation by artists that really care about what is going on here. Highly recommend! And the guide told us about the fried Oreos... More
