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, arts and cultural enrichment. The Neon Museum campus includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard, a visitors’ center housed inside the former La Concha Motel lobby and the Neon Boneyard North Gallery which houses additional rescued signs and is available for weddings, special events, photo shoots and educational programs.

Due to the nature of our collection, the Neon Museum Boneyard is only available to the public through an hour long guided tour. Tours are available seven days a week and tour times vary based on the season.

Dedicated individuals from the private sector, as well as corporate and government entities, worked collaboratively to promote the preservation of these national treasures as significant pieces of artistic and historical importance. Each sign in the Neon Museum’s collection offers a unique story about the personalities who created it, what inspired it, where and when it was made, and the role it played in Las Vegas’ distinctive history.

In addition, the Neon Museum collection chronicles changes and trends in sign design and technology through pieces ranging from the 1930s to the present day.

Public education, outreach, research, archival preservation and a grant-funded neon sign survey represent a selection of the museum’s ongoing projects.

An amazing resource to archive and restore the Las Vegas historic Neon's that are disappearing due to changes in technology. Take a night tour if you can and you will see the restored signs lit as well as seeing the others very effectively displayed and narrated by a knowledgable tour guide. Plan ahead as the sessions get booked up very... More

Took an Uber here on our last day in Vegas, and so glad we did! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and the tour and exhibit offered very interesting insight into Vegas' history. Recommended for anyone spending more than a couple days in Vegas.

One of my coworkers told me to go visit. It's outside the strip, passed the Fremont Street. Lots of history, great tour, our guide was really passionate about the museum. Lots of great vintage sign. Takes about 30 minutes, well worth the $. They will had more signs soon. Non profit organisation, they preserve history, go visit!!!

We pre booked this tour before leaving England as we read previous reviews about how booked it gets. Well worth visiting. Frank was our excellent guide for the evening. Very knowledgable local. A shame not more of the old signs were lit but as he explained, the cost of renovation is tremendous. A tip that Frank gave us was to... More

The photo tours are very restrictive (although none of this is mentioned on the website and before booking, you only find out when you get there and they make you sign a ridiculous release(, you're not even allowed to take pictures of your partner in front of any of the signs, as they consider that "modeling" and a "photo shoot",...

This establishment was chosen by one of the other 5 in our group. We each chose 2 places we could visit. This was her top pick, not mine. But, it ended up being one of my favorites. The tour guides were so knowledgeable, it was incredible. Questions were popped at them like popcorn, and they knew all the answers not... More

The signs are great. Good photo ops. Can be warm in the afternoon as the tour is all outside. My tour guide was very informative. Highly recommend. Is a quick walk (through a semi bad few blocks) to The Mob Museum if you bought a combo ticket.

It was so unbelievably cool to see these iconic signs from old hotels and casinos! If you are a Vegas/history buff, this is a must do. Go to the website to understand booking, policies, etc. The gift shop has some cool stuff. The guides are very informative and I learned a lot. That being said, there were some moments of... More

We went in late afternoon and by the end of the tour the lights came on for some of the signs. ..This place is underrated, it's great to hear about the history of Las Vegas through the signs. Tour guide grew up there and was very knowledgeable. Beware of the stray cats though - one of them came up to... More
