If you are losing a little too much $$$ in the casinos or want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, take a step into the past by visiting The Neon Museum, also known as the Boneyard. Here you can see many of the old signs that helped make Las Vegas famous. We visited The Neon Museum on a cold afternoon in late December. Even though it was chilly, the tour guide had such interesting stories the time passed by quickly. He had a lot of history to impart and it was fun seeing signs (or partial signs) of Las Vegas landmarks. I espeically liked the Stardust and Liberace Museum signs (see attached pictures). There is one from the Las Vegas Club that was a good picture taking opportunity. They even have old signs from restaurants and products--liked the one for aspirin!!! You need to buy tickets in advance as the tours fill up--they were sold out the day we visited as they were turning people away. Parking is a bit tight so I recommend getting there early. The Neon Museum is not too far from downtown Las Vegas but is not in a particularly good part of town so I recommend driving or taking a cab there. You will know you are in the right place when you see a neon shoe as well as the facade for the old Concha Hotel, which is now the visitor center. I've been going to Las Vegas for years but this is the first time I had the pleasure of visiting this museum. I would definitely recommend it to other visitors as well. Enjoy!!!
