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.

Just got back and loved the experience! Location is a little off threaten path- so don't try to walk from Fremont area. We had a daytime tour- might have like to see more of the restored projects there lit up properly, but only a few are functional. Not sure if a nighttime tour would have been better or not. However... More

This one's a gem, especially if you're into mid-century style. The exhibit is outdoors, so dress appropriately. You will have a chance to experience old Las Vegas up close and personal while touring the "bone yard" of signs from famous Las Vegas Casinos. It turns out that the sign manufacturers of the day leased their signs to the casinos, and... More

A friend had recommended this to us and it was a bit of distance from the Strip, but worth the trouble to get there. The entrance to the museum is in the restored lobby of a former Las Vegas motel which was cut into pieces and reassembled on site. We didn't know what to expect, but we were lucky to... More

We had an awesome tour thanks to our very knowledgeable and fun tour guide. Our guide gave us so much cool information about the signs, the history, story and artistry behind the signs. This is a great side trip and with it!

This was an interesting visit off of the strip. The tour was full of great information about the history of Vegas and the casinos. If you are a lover of photography this is a great place to find some interesting shots, too! My whole family enjoyed the visit and we would go back again, maybe for a night tour so... More

This is the resting place where all Las Vegas Neon Signs are put to rest after the many years of lighting up nightly for the people from all over the country to see in their glory Once retired you can go revisit these famous signs and pay your respect to them. You can still enjoy them, take pictures of the... More

Loved visiting her and seeing all the historical signs, the tour was great and I got some great photos. I wish most of them had been light up but they were still amazing. Highly recommend!
