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 like nostalgia and history of the Las Vegas, you will be pleased with what you will see here. We had bought a Neon/Mob museum combo pass and we saved quite a bit for the two activities. To see all these signs that have so much history was almost like watching a friend die of a slow death. Some... More

Really enjoyed the tour, much care is placed to preserve and showcases these unique signs. I preferred the evening tour to see as many signs lit as possible. This organization is non-profit and do their best to preserve the integrity and story of the signs. The tour changes periodically because of availability, storage, funding etc... A very worthwhile tour if... More

This was a very informative tour. The guide was throughly knowledgeable. Too bad most of the signs were none functioning. But still a great tour.

The people involved in getting this museum going and getting the funding to keep it going do a lot of hard work. Historic building and sign preservation is not something people in Las Vegas have thought much about until recently. It was truly awesome to be near some of these big signs. You felt so small! The tour guide was... More

Maybe I'm just a sign geek, but this was one of the best 'shows' I've seen in Vegas (6 times and counting). Loved our guide (sorry, can't remember her name) and her love of art and history. Did the 7 pm tour which was absolutely a perfect mix of daytime and night signs. I can't believe I haven't done this... More

We popped in at the Neon Museum and didn't get to take a tour unfortunately. However, we got to view the back lot and had fun seeing some of the old signs. Next time I hope to do the tour!

This was an interesting visit with a guide who was clearly very passionate and knowledgeable - though the hour tour seemed a little stretched for our small group. The nature of the tour and the museum have been well documented by others, so I won't cover that again but rather mention two comments / observations which I hope might be... More

You can tell on arrival that this is a labour of love, and it shows throughout the tour. Old neon signs have been rescued when casinos and other establishments have been torn down or updated. You may find them here. The guides clearly knew their subject and made it an absorbing hour in this outdoor museum. Highly recommended, and a... More
