This was very interesting and nice to see. However the setup is crazy. The signs are in parts and not together throughout the museum. You have to stay in a group, even going to the restroom is a chore.

In the middle of a run down area it's basically a big old lot, full of garbage. You really need to be an old timer to get a kick out of all this stuff. I'm guess most wouldn't think this worth the trip?

Wonderful break from the strip. My husband and I took a 4pm tour last Wednesday. I booked it from our hotel on the museum's website. We walked from Freemont street, not too bad---about 20 minutes. Our tour guide was wonderful, and full of interesting facts regarding the signs. The temperature was around 100 that day, so I highly suggest water... More

You get a true feel for the history of Las Vegas here. Seeing all those signs and hearing the history behind them was awesome. The young lady (I think her name was Maggie) that gave us the tour was very knowledgeable. They have more signs waiting for restoration. Would love to see them on the tour next time. Totally a...

Do not pass up taking a tour of the neon bone yard. So many great signs have been rescued and are here for our enjoyment. The volunteer tour guides are amazing and know so much about the history.

I had reserved a 2 pm tour but my flight arrived early and after finishing lunch at the Main Street Casino, I headed over to the Neon Museum and asked if I could attend an earlier tour. They told me that normally the answer would be no but that there was plenty of room at the noon tour and they... More

Sitting here in the UK watching CSI they had an episode featuring the Neon Boneyard, so we thought we'd visit it while on holiday. It was very good, our tour guide Mitch was very informative and made the tour interesting, which it probably wouldnt have been if we'd just walked around on our own. It was very, very hot for...
