Uncover signs of Las Vegas’ past at the Neon Museum
The Neon Museum, encompassing a two-acre outdoor space in downtown Las Vegas, is home to more than 150 donated and rescued signs dating from the 1930s to present day. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to preserving the history of the city through its indigenous art form, the neon sign! The Neon Museum’s collection consists of three components: the Neon Boneyard, the Downtown Gallery and the Las Vegas Signs project. The Downtown Gallery (Fremont Street at Las Vegas Boulevard) and the Las Vegas Signs Project (located on Las Vegas Boulevard between Sahara and Washington avenues) feature 15 electrified, restored signs installed as public art throughout the downtown area. These signs are available for viewing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Neon Boneyard, on Museum grounds at 770 Las Vegas Boulevard North, is available for guided tours Monday through Sunday starting at 10 a.m. Tours routinely fill up, so guests are encouraged to book a tour time in advance on the museum’s website (neonmuseum.org). This is a must-see attraction the next time you’re in Las Vegas. Our free shuttle departs for the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas at 6 and 8 p.m. every Thursday. Sign up with the concierge. Although the Neon Boneyard is just five blocks north of the Fremont Street Experience, we strongly recommend taking a cab to and from the facility, which is located in an archetypal urban environment.
