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.

  • My BFF and I did the boneyard tour at night. It was her second visit to the Neon Museum but first at night, whereas it was my first visit overall. The visit exceeded my expectations in how much...

  • Docent who guided tour was very informative and kept the tour moving along. We had teens with us, so they appreciated that. Obviously, much better to do this tour at night with the neon lights...

  • 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.
  • Such an amazing guided history of Las Vegas. I recommend going as or after the sun sets!! Some signs from places only still alive in stories told by your tour guides, as well as those that are replaced with updated signage. This place has everything: old signs back to the early days lit by can lights, signs and lights from small businesses that Vegas used to know, the fully functioning Stardust marque, to the original guitar beckoning visitors to the Hard Rock Cafe!! And a few fun surprises along the way!! One of this city's best hidden gems, but hopefully not for to long!!
