We went to the Neon Museum after dinner for the holiday night tour and was disappointed. There is only like 4 signs that are lit up. We had a locals discount for our tickets and they were still $22 I don't think the tour is worth $25. Maybe $10 charge would be worth it.

Really glad we opted for the night tour. Interesting tour of decommissioned neon and light signs dating back to 1940's. Super knowledgeable guide who really made it a great tour.

Fun, unique experience. Our tour guide, April, was full of different & fun information. A great collection of old signs & nice to see them getting redone. Seeing it at night definitely is the way to go, I can't imagine it would have the same effect during the day.

You can't put a price on history. The managers of the museum are doing a great job keeping old Las Vegas preserved. They are predominantly privately operated and restoring these signs is very expensive. If you want free then go see the Fountains in Front of Bellagio. If you want history, walk down Freemont and see the signs that have... More

Really enjoyed this place. We loved seeing the old signs on display in this "bone yard" and the stories of casinos long gone, ones our parents told about.

This was our third trip to Vegas together and we wanted to get away from the strip and do something different. The Neon Museum seemed to be just what we were looking for, so we booked the night-time tour. I am glad I went to the Neon museum, however I wouldn't go out of my way to see it! If... More

Also called "The Boneyard", this interesting museum is where older Las Vegas signs (mostly, but not all, neon) go to live when they've outlived their stays above hotels, casinos, and other attractions. The museum's mission is twofold - to rescue what they can and to educate visitors to Las Vegas about the signs. The signs are displayed as well as... More

My wife and I took the afternoon tour, they also have a night tour which we did not take (should be interesting.) You go outside so be prepared for the weather. We enjoyed it very much, it takes about 45 minutes to go over all the most interesting signs. The tour is well explained with each sign's history. I recommend... More

Call me cheap if you must but I find it pricey to pay $18pp to tour a parking lot of old signs for an hour - especially when said parking lot is leased for the cost of one dollar a year! I enjoyed hearing the stories behind the signs and a "where they are now" of Las Vegas history. They... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Neon Museum and Boneyards (near downtown), which has a wonderful collection of old sign remnants representing the Vegas of yore, and which they are restoring as time and funds permit. The signs are displayed in a very attractive way and the staff are very knowledgeable about the art and historic significance of... More
