The guided tour was full of LV history but still allowed for picture taking and questions. It was very clean, I felt that I got so much more than I thought I was going to get out of it.

Love this place! It was great to see all the signs and learn about early neon and see all the early signs.

We had booked a tour at 8pm. It was just about to get dark. First, we were a little disappointed that there were only 4 of the signs working. But time by time it got totally dark and it was very mystical to walk through all the old signs lit up by headlights. Our guide Ian told us many interesting... More

The most important thing to realize that if you go at night, the only advantage is that it won't be as hot -- I thought all the signs might be lit up, but they are not. Some are, but only a few. Guide was very informative, and the whole thing is only an hour long so it's easily manageable. (Our... More

Took the guided daytime tour. Bring your own water (or buy. For $1) and a hat or umbrella for shade. Excellent hour long history of the signs, plenty of space to snap a few photos. Get a cab, it will cost about $7 from Golden Nugget and they will gladly order a return cab for you.

This tour is probably more enjoyable when it isn't 110 degrees outside otherwise, it was great! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable! We learned many fun and interesting facts not only about the signs but about Las Vegas itself. The daytime tour is $18 (students and seniors get a discount), the evening tour is $25. We originally were going to... More

Great place to go to see the neon signs from the era of Las Vegas that doesn't exist anymore. For anyone familiar with, or who wants to learn more about the history of Las Vegas, this is the place to go. Their sign collection is incredible, and the docents are VERY knowledgeable about the history of Las Vegas and the... More

Las Vegas has to be the most dynamic city on the planet, shedding its glittery skin every few years and emerging as yet another outrageous beast we all want to marvel at. The Neon Museum lets you wallow in a little nostalgia, giving you the opportunity to transport yourself back to any Las Vegas you want to find yourself in.... More

This was our 1st time at the neon museum and we wanted to go during the day since only 3 signs are lit up at night. It's an hour long guided tour of many old and some not so old Vegas signs. The guide gives an interesting history of the signs. We called and got our tickets the day before.... More

The best part of our night tour was our guide - a volunteer who spends her evenings showing tourists the historical side of Las Vegas. You could see the passion this museum has for preserving the past - all in a town that, once bored with a hotel, implodes it and starts over. Well worth the price of admission. Note... More
