Not a lot of availability, so we booked in advance, hoping to take great photos. The only available time was 16h00, and it was really hot. The signs are all one above the other. They are an excuse to tell the story of Las Vegas, which is interesting, the guide is passionate and knows her thing. But they go on... More

This is a fun tour if you are interested in Las Vegas history or architectural type things. The tour guides are very informative and provide some interesting history behind the various signs they have in the yard. Some tips on visiting - the tours start every half hour and they do fill up pretty quickly, so it is helpful to... More

The Neon Museum is a great experience. I've been 3 times and will visit again. The museum tells the history of Las Vegas through it's extensive collection of neon signs. If you have nostalgia for the old Vegas, you'll love the Neon Museum. Signs are only viewable on a tour. These tours fill up so it's wise to book in... More

This is such a cool tour. A must! The tour guides are very good, and tie a lot of history into the signs they have at the boneyard. Make sure to take a hat in the warm months, you are outside unshaded for 1 hour, same goes for the colder month and a jacket. They do sell water at the... More

My girlfriends and I visited the Neon Museum earlier this month during my bachelorette weekend. One of my friends suggested it and really who couldn't use some culture and history on a trip to Vegas. So we booked our tickets online prior to leaving, this is HIGHLY recommended especially if you have more than a couple of people. We set... More

We then went down to Fremont Street and, boy oh boy, that was filled with all sorts of crazy. Oh my stars. We hung around for the canopy show, but had to hightail it out to the Neon Boneyard as we had a 7:30pm tour booked. I am a huge fan of neon, and the artistry that is behind it.... More

What an interesting tour with so many facts about the background on all the signs in the museum. The hour flew by walking through the Neon Sign Boneyard and listening to the volunteer talk about the history of the neon signs that were restored and the ones in need of repair. There are a few benches to sit on during... More

It was hot [100+ degrees] and dusty, the sun was beating down on the neon light bone yard. But hey, I did not mind it. The neon lights and Las Vegas past came alive with the excellent story telling.

I thought by booking at 10:00am we would get the tour before it got hot, but that was not the case. So if you're going in the summer time and it's 100 degrees, be sure to wear a brimmed hat and sunblock. Looking at the old signs and hearing their history was quite interesting and lots of photo ops for... More
