Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic and cultural enrichment. In addition to an approximately two-acre Neon Museum campus, which includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard, the museum also encompasses a visitors’ center housed inside the former La Concha Motel.Guided tours are available seven days a week every half hour starting at 10 a.m. and run all day with the final tour departing at 8:30 p.m. The Fall/Winter Night Tour showcases our restored signs within the Neon Boneyard along with our recently installed illumination for our unrestored collection.

Just walking among the old neon signs of Las Vegas brings back the good old days of glamour and glitz. Our guide, Brenna, was full of stories of how Las Vegas grew from a sleepy little Mormon town into the land of booze, babes, and gambling. It’s a shame that they don’t have enough money to restore more signs than... More

My husband and I have been coming here for years and are big fans. We tell all our friends to visit and they won’t be disappointed with their tours. The old Vegas hotel called “La Concha” (the shell) gave the museum its lobby with the proviso that they had to move it to the Neon Museum’s area. The architect of... More

I enjoyed my visit so much. It was so interesting to learn all about the history of all the neon signs, and so many good stories about old Las Vegas, mob murders, and characters. I love taking photos got some really good shots for my holiday album. NOTE: You need to book ahead online! And don't leave it until the... More

Holy Smokes just awesome. A must come visit so book your RSVP for times of tours. This is a place where you can see the Vintage/ Retired Las Vegas Neon Signs. I enjoyed it much so that I will recommend all to see it.

My husband and I really enjoyed the museum. He loves history and I love artsy things so this was the best of both worlds. I recommend doing this early in your trip. That way you can keep your eyes peeled for some more signs and features all week long! Umbrellas were available for anyone to use to keep the sun... More

We really enjoyed our 1 hour tour of the Neon Museum. A cab ride from the strip but worth the inconvenience and expense. Book online before you get there as most of the tours were sold out for the day. Tour guide shared a brief history of Las Vegas and actually seeing some f the old signs is great.

We booked a tour for 7.30pm as we wanted to see the signs lit up at night. I think we made a good decision to book our tickets before we came out to Vegas as the slots get booked up really quickly and each tour only has about 15 people in it. We took a taxi from the strip to... More

I enjoyed hearing about the history of early Vegas as we toured the neon sign "boneyard" not to far from Freemont Street. I recommend this to all those that enjoy history too.

A must do if you have an appreciation for the history and stories behind the city. The information they share about the signs and Vegas pastimes make your whole vacation that much more interesting.
