For $18.00 per person you get to stand in 90 degree heat for an hour, to see rusted relics of old signs. They don’t do any restoring onsite there are no workshops to observe. I found this boring. Don’t waste your money.

Step back in time on this wonderful guided tour to old Las Vegas. Back when people wore evening gowns & suits, mobs ran casinos and the Neon Signs pointed the way to the action. The stories told by the tour guides are filled with the history of what made Vegas. Have a question? Ask away, they are extremely knowledgeable. You... More

1) Go to the Neon Museum as soon as you arrive in Las Vegas: You'll learn lots about Las Vegas history, it's old buildings, it's new buildings and everywhere you go in town afterwards will have a story to it. You'll learn about designers, pioneers, gangsters, artists and architecture...you name it! 2) Take sunscreen and water or buy it for... More

They tell you a bunch about the history of Las Vegas via the old signage. We went to the 8 p.m. tour which meant mild weather and a nice evening out. Go, you'll find it worthwhile.

The museum and it's signs are a rare find, what a cool place. It's clear that the "guides" are sick of tourist as you can see it on their faces and hear it in the tone of their voices. Courtney was unbelievably rude, so rude that I actually called the museum to get her name to include in this review.... More

A wonderful graveyard for old signs. Creatively displayed, Very knowledgeable guides. Signs on display throughout the area. It's almost like a scavenger hunt. About a 15 minute walk along Las Vegas Blvd. from the Freemont St. attraction. Book ahead. Glad to see historic items saved. Evening tour was great!

The signs were interesting. The stories and history were EXCELLENT. The staff when we bought the tickets were very professional and friendly. My only concern was the person giving the tour. She moved very fast. Several people in the group were taking pictures of the signs. The tour guide seemed more concerned with rushing us through than allowing people to... More

Fantastic hour-and-a-bit tour of the Vegas Strip neon sign "boneyard." See famous signs like the Golden Nugget, Caesars and Flamingo. Best part is the guide (Paul was awesome) who shares backstories, histories and fun facts about the signs, the signmakers and the people that made Vegas famous.
