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.

This is a must in Vegas. The tour guide had lots of great stories, really engaged with the group and knew her stuff. So beautiful when it's dark and makes for a nice change from the strip.

This is a collection of neon signs that were in Las Vegas. There are many old hotel signs with a lot of history. The tour is narrated which makes it a plus.

Great little museum. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Lots to learn about Las Vegas history, from a city, as our guides admits, is not known for preservation. Definitely add this to your list of things to see.

Although most of the signage is not active, the tour guides share so much of Vegas history that the signs seem to come alive. Paying a little extra to go after dark is worth it. Cameras are allowed but no video or audio recording. Strict rules about staying with tour guide, so don't plan on wandering around on your own.

Get a two museum ticket and see the Mob Museum too. We did the day tour, our guide was so knowledgeable and had lots of interesting stories. It's worth a trip back to see the museum at night and lit up. This proves that there are many places to see in Las Vegas that don't directly involve gambling.

Where neon signs go to retire. Visits are by guided tours only and after going through it, its the only way to see it. The guides are knowledgable and provide the history associated with all the signs. It will only take about an hour to go through the museum but worth the visit for the history and photo ops.

We found this to be interesting. It wasn't cheap to walk around in a large area with old signs. you can't just walk it. You need to take the 1 hour tour. We did appreciate all the info our guide provided but an hour long tour could have been reduced to 20 mins and let you walk around a little... More

Las Vegas is famous for imploding buildings and doing away with the old to make way for the new. Ever wonder where all those huge signs went? Wonder no more! A few blocks north of the downtown area is the Neon Museum. Many of the familiar old signs from years gone by are in this museum. I recently visited for... More
