The Neon Museum | Las Vegas Attractions

The Neon Museum was established to preserve the early artwork and riveting stories behind some of Las Vegas' most iconic signs and the city’s unique history. The visitor’s center of The Neon Museum is located inside the historic La Concha Motel lobby, but the museum itself is a bit more spread out. The Neon Boneyard, the primary collection of The Neon Museum, showcases approximately 250 vintage Vegas signs, with nearly two dozen signs that are restored and reilluminated at night and others accented with ground lighting for a dramatic effect.

The Neon Museum offers General Admission to the Neon Boneyard in the daytime, allowing guests to view the vintage sign collection at their leisure for up to an hour, as well as 45-minute guided tours, in English and Spanish, in the evening when the Boneyard’s signs are lit.

The North Gallery sits adjacent to the museum and is home to Brilliant! Jackpot, an immersive evening experience utilizing the latest technology in sound and projection lighting to make nearly 40 unrestored signs magically come to life. The North Gallery also pays tribute to lesser-known icons who greatly shaped Vegas culture with its Las Vegas Luminaries mural.

The glittery lights and vintage Vegas vibe of The Neon Museum makes it the perfect destination for photographs and special events. As a result, it has become a popular venue for weddings and private photo shoots.

In addition to the Neon Boneyard and North Gallery, The Neon Museum offers a small collection of public art displays that can be found throughout downtown Las Vegas. There are currently nine beautifully restored neon signs that can be visited on a self-guided tour, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The first of these signs to be installed was the fabulous Hacienda Horse and Rider currently on display on Las Vegas Boulevard at Fremont Street.

Just checked the Neon Museum off our bucket list during our recent Vegas trip and it did not disappoint! Visiting at night is a must, as the old signs light up in a magical way. It truly is a walk through Las Vegas history like no other museum. You have the option of a guided tour or a self-guided tour using your phone. We opted for the self-guided audio tour and found it to be informative and engaging. The outdoor museum features a dirt walking path that takes about 20-30 minutes to explore. While everything is cordoned off for safety, it's important to keep an eye on curious kids. The guides we observed were friendly and knowledgeable, though some other staff members came across as unfriendly. Despite this, the Neon Museum is a must-see for anyone looking to delve into the history of Las Vegas. Don't miss it on your Vegas itinerary!

Recently checked off the Neon Museum from our bucket list during our visit to Las Vegas. We recommend going at night as the old signs come to life with a magical glow. It's a unique stroll through the history of Las Vegas like no other museum. There are guided tours available, or you can opt for a self-guided tour using your phone. We arrived too late for a guided tour but enjoyed the audio tour that provided interesting historical tidbits about the signs. The outdoor museum features a dirt walking path through the signs and takes about 20-30 minutes to explore. While everything is cordoned off for safety, it's important to keep children from getting too close. The guides we saw were knowledgeable and friendly, though some of the other staff felt a bit unwelcoming and strict about rules. Despite that, it's definitely worth adding to your Vegas itinerary for a glimpse into its vibrant past.

We went in the evening and walked through the boneyard. If you had questions while walking around, there were plenty of staff to help you. They were very informative and nice. It was so cool to see all the signs, some I remembered from a long time ago. It is a little pricey for the size of the museum but definitely worth it. They have a nice gift shop as well. My son lives in Las Vegas and said he had never been before, and he loved it.

What I Disliked

We had a wonderful time at the Neon Museum. First, the ease of booking tickets online was great. When we arrived on site there was ample parking options in their lot. Everything was very accessible -- we had two people in our party with mobility concerns who had no issue navigating on their electric scooters. The terrain is a bit gravely in some areas but that didn't affect us. Every person I encountered at the museum was warm and welcoming. The security guards out front and the folks in the front lobby were awesome and helpful. We didn't do the guided tour but I eavesdropped on one and it sounded so fun and informative! There was also a guy standing in one area available for questions or to provide patrons with facts. He had a wealth of knowledge of the history of Las Vegas which was remarkable considering he seemed very young. My mom enjoyed chatting with him. We went around the museum twice to capture all the beauty. It's great that you can move at your own pace. The museum is outside, so dress accordingly. Overall I would recommend to anyone visiting Vegas!

What I Disliked

We enjoyed the museum, the history is great, and if course the place looks amazing at night. We did both the guided tour and the light show afterwards. I would have skipped the guided tour (assuming there's an option for a self guided walk through the park) I found the tour guide to be a little too hammy. It seemed like the ratio was 70% her working on her one liners to 30% talking about the signs. I'm sure some people enjoy that, it's just not for me. Overall well worth the money, we enjoyed ourselves very much.
