If you've always wanted to go to The Neon Museum and wander the boneyard of fantastic vintage signs from Las Vegas's past, this might be your best chance for a while. The Sin City museum has joined colleagues such as The Broad and The MET in exhibiting some of their best artwork online for the enjoyment of anyone with a WiFi signal or a data plan. 

The virtual tour, accessed via a free app which can be used on a computer or a smart phone, explores the history of the Las Vegas Strip through its iconic neon signs including out-of-service signage from the Hard Rock Café, the Golden Nugget, Sassy Sally’s, the Stardust, and the Riviera. The slideshow-like tour includes text and audio narration for about 25 sign including pieces from the 2019 exhibition Lost Vegas: Tim Burton @ The Neon Museum.
