Las Vegas is famous for the neon lights that light up its night. Some of those signs have become iconic in their own right. But obviously all those different flashing wonders couldn’t stay the same year after year, and so were retired…until the Young Electric Sign Company, which had kept these beauties in their boneyard, let the Neon Museum restore them.
The museums been re-establishing the signs along the Fremont Street Experience and the Boneyard itself contains over 150 signs. The museum also houses fibreglass sculptures such as the Giant Skull from Treasure Island. Tours of the Boneyard must be booked beforehand, but the 12 restored signs of downtown Las Vegas can be toured by you. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Las Vegas itinerary 5 days.

Neon Museum Reviews & Ratings
We enjoyed the museum. My husband wanted to see some of the old signs that his grandfather had designed for some of those old hotels like the Sands for example. Too bad that it wasn't closer to the main strip and showcased in an indoor museum to be displayed and preserved even more so for all to really appreciate the old Las Vegas. It was very nice to see and the museum gift shop had a very nice selection of gift items. Again, something that I have always wanted to do and finally was able to make it part of the schedule. Thank you to all of the kind staff that worked there too that were helpful, fun, knowledgeable and so very nice!!!
Always go at night. It's a neon museum. DUH. Seriously though, I went here last year in December and it was delightful. Specifically, our tour guide was delightful and he made the entire experience so enjoyable. If you have a choice (and if he still works there) get Sweeney (sp?) as your guide through this. The fact that this gentleman has such wonderful energy and is genuinely enthusiastic about the history of these lights, made me wish we could have stuck around longer at each stop in the tour instead of making sure we didn't get caught up to by another group. A teacher that clearly loves and is interested in the thing they're teaching you about is the best kind. They make you want to learn more and keep your attention naturally. You'll learn a lot about the history of Las Vegas itself and its neon lights, while also having a blast checking out this little resting place for many of the signs from the city's most iconic casinos. Especially if Sweeney is your guide. Get Sweeney!
Soooo neat! We purchased the combo package -- guided tour and brilliant show. While the guided tour can feel a bit long and heavy with facts, if you're a history buff you'll enjoy it. Just seeing the old signs and learning about their history and how local Vegas and Nevada culture developed was fascinating. Brilliant is amazing!! It's hard to describe, but just go! It's a remarkable show and celebration of art and life and humanity!
What a wonderful learning experience. Step into a world of Old Las Vegas with nostalgic signs from back in the day. If you take the time to listen to the info on the cool link the museum provides then the exhibit will take you less than 20 min to walk around, but there is so much cool information and history given on each sign and the employees walking around are beyond informative.
We ordered tickets online which saved us $2 per ticket. Going in the daytime was less busy but super hot! They do provide umbrellas so make sure you grab one. It was really cool to see all the signs. Could have gone in the night time for the lights but then we won't be able to get these nice photos. Good experience! 👍
