This is a very interesting museum to see. A little out of the way and cost a bit to get there (not within walking distance from Fremont Street, if you try it you are going to go through some rough areas to get there. So take into consideration the cost of tickets to get in plus the taxi to and... More

No one can go back in time -- to live the moments with the Rat Pack -- or see LV as it evolved. But a visit to the Neon Museum might get you close. You can see the signs and hear the stories during your tour. It is a fascinating peek. One that I highly recommend you take time to... More

Really well done. The idea behind the museum is worth the admission price. It is a worthy cause. Tour guide provided history of many of the signs. We went at night which was an added bonus. Easy to find and parking on site.

We booked the early time of 9.30am. It was really hot already. Our guide Sean was a cool cat who had plenty of great stories and anecdotes to tell us as we walked through the old disused neon signs. We took plenty of pictures and listened to his stories. We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend this. Our... More

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.

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
