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.

If you are interested in the history of Vegas and the bright lights, and you have more than a few days to play with, i'd definitely recommend booking ahead for this tour (booking probably essential). It's an hour out of your schedule, 10 mins walk from Heart Attack Grill.

Great Museum, excellent tour, nice gifts. The museum makes sure your tour group is limited so you have plenty of opportunity to take in the interesting stories told by your guide and also take all the pictures you want. I went on a morning tour and enjoyed all the colors of the signs against a blue blue sky backdrop. The... More

This tour is definitely off the beaten path but well worth it. The hour long guided tour not only teaches you about the signs themselves but also some of the history of Vegas. Really interesting and well worth it but make sure and book your tour in advance!!

This is off the beaten path, but it's such a fun place to visit. Where else are you going to find a museum of old neon signs? This is a must see especially for photographers. There are so many great photo ops.

We walked to the museum, through a somewhat less desirable part of Las Vegas. On arrival we were told that we needed to book. We could find no literature stating we had to book. Very disapointing

Wow. It's true that you never know what treasures you gonna find at a junk-yard. The museum only allows visitors to view the exhibits on a guided tour. Went on a night tour. Our volunteered chaperons were knowledgeable and were enthusiastic to share the history of the signboards with us. We had a fun time listening to a bit of... More

We booked an evening tour a few months out to make sure we could get tickets for a night tour. We booked a night tour because in looking at pictures, it made sense to go at night to see the old neon signs lit up. Turns out you're better off to go in the daytime because out of all the... More

This looked like such a fun exhibit and we would have loved to go through, but as soon as our tour started the winds kicked up and it was very windy. They cancelled the next 2 tours. I thought that was good as a safety precaution as many of the signs are huge and most likely not secured. We couldn't... More

This place is amazing and houses some real Las Vegas history along with some fantastic photo opportunities. Our tour guide was Mitch and he was so knowledgable and interesting to listen to, I could go round again if I got the opportunity. I would recommend an early morning visit to the museum as you're walking around in the direct sun... More

Museum is by tour only, so it is recommended to reserve early, and worth the trouble. The tour was fun and in some ways sad, to see everything that is no longer there. For me it was very nostalgic to see signs from some of the long gone casinos that were operating when we first visited Vegas in the 80's.... More
