Neon Museum

Ever wonder where old neon signs go to die? Well, it’s The Boneyard at the Neon Museum.


Time Out says

What is the Neon Museum?

It’s the place where the neon signs that once graced the historic marquees of the past live on, many in all their illuminated glory on a plot of dirt in downtown Las Vegas. Visitors enter the museum through the shell-shaped La Concha lobby (built in 1961), which, like all the signs here, was saved from demolition and moved to the site.

Is the Neon Museum worth visiting?

It’s great for social media. Founded in 1996, the forward-thinking minds behind the Neon Museum helped salvage hundreds of historic signs, keeping them from hitting the real boneyard–never to be seen again. From the original Hard Rock guitar to illuminated signs like the Fitzgerald, Riviera, The Flame, and Ugly Duckling, it’s picture-perfect. The Boneyard contains more than 250 unrestored signs, illuminated at sunset with ground lighting, while numerous restored signs are lit all the time.

What’s the best way to see the Neon Museum?

Take a tour and learn the history. The stories are as legendary as the signs themselves.

Where is good to eat around the Neon Museum?

While you’re downtown, check out the Fremont Street Experience. There are dozens of restaurants at the many casinos and nearby neighborhood.
