Create an itinerary including The Neon Museum
Las Vegas is the world capital of neon art, and The Neon Museum is there to preserve and display some of it. The museum refurbishes old and discarded neon signs and tells the history of the city through them. Some of the restored signs are displayed in various locations in downtown Las Vegas, but most are located in the museum’s outdoor exhibition area, known as the Boneyard. Here you can take a tour of iconic signs, such as the signs for Caesar's Palace and Stardust casinos. All the tours are guided and should be booked in advance. Bad weather could cause tours to be canceled. Be careful of rusty metal and broken glass in the Boneyard area. Work out when and for how long to visit The Neon Museum and other Las Vegas attractions using our handy Las Vegas trip maker website.

  • Little way from stop and whilst close to Freemont it's a slightly sketchy area to walk around, but that's all of Vegas. We did the dusk tour and was delightful watching sunset over this outdoor...

  • Great tour. Loved the history of Las Vegas. Tour guide Cat was fantastic and very knowledgeable. 45 minutes, and great price. Nice to see all the old signs lit up

  • This was such a fun experience. For any fan of Old Vegas this is a must. When I was 4 and 10 my parents took me to Las Vegas ... both as road trips to California from the Midwest. 1974 and 1980. To see these signs which once majestically graced downtown and the Strip brought back so many memories. Vegas was a more simple era and time back then. At night these relics lit up Vegas in the most amazing way. Would love to thank the museum for saving these pieces of history. I couldn’t believe I stood right next to the Stardust sign. One tip ... while waiting for your tour across the street make sure you read the placards on the items in the waiting area. They reveal where the letters for the graveyard marquee came from. And I had no clue the lobby/main entrance was once a hotel lobby that was moved to the site. Thank you again for a wonderful time.
  • Excellent. Take your water!! It's cool for kids too but not too young. A lot of standing and listening which isn't ideal for them! The Brilliant part was great too and would be good for kids. - but again a lot of listening but the Brilliant has more video/tech to watch. At first I didn't think I'd like a museum with a bunch of old signs but it was actually great and one highlight of my Vegas trip. If you're okay with walking and the heat - highly recommend. A cool way to learn some history of Vegas.
