The old lighted signs for Las Vegas are so artfully arranged at this outdoor museum that they are a must for any/all photographers. The guide was knowledgeable and I certainly would go there again!

A really fun tour with a lot to see and great stories about the signs on display. Would go on the tour again, perhaps next time in the dark.

I thought the tour itself was interesting and we learned some neat facts. The tour guide was informed of the facts but not much personality wise. $18 seemed very steep for what you get. We rented a car and so it was easy to find. They do treat you like you are a child and have many rules and security.... More

What says Las Vegas more than a flashing neon sign the size of a house? This boneyard holds lots of history and stories to tell. The evening tour is a perfect setting to remember Las Vegas of the past. Worth a visit. The Stardust hotel holds memories as we stayed there the last night before it closed.

The biggest criticism we have is finding the place and the parking. The sign for parking is not clear and we did some wandering before finally getting to the right parking lot. Other than that, the tour was outstanding and not what we expected. The neon signs are super organized, and being a couple who started visiting Las Vegas in... More

Let me start off by saying you can get a combo ticket for the Neon Museum and the Mob Museum for $30 per person, and both places deserve a visit. If you buy the combo ticket you have up to 7 days to visit the Mob Museum. The museum is located about one mile down Las Vegas Blvd from the... More

Let's face it; when you think of Las Vegas, you think of overwhelming blinking signs and a kitsch. I'm not sure that Vegas is called the Neon Capital of the world but it should be. Considering the transient nature of Las Vegas, it's a miracle that any of these iconic signs remain. Well, miracle with a little help from some... More

Loved visiting this outdoor neon boneyard! Abandoned neon signs from Vegas well- and lesser-known institutions are artfully arranged in a lot, where guests are guided around by a knowledgeable docent (thank you, Sean) for a slice of Americana that is best learned in the neon heaven of Las Vegas. Make a reservation and take a cab. Plan on taking a... More
