Lonely Planet review for Neon Museum
Experience the outdoor displays through a fascinating walking tour ($15) of the newly unveiled Neon Boneyard Park, where irreplaceable vintage neon signs – the original art form of Las Vegas – spend their retirement. At press time, the museum was expanding their digs and hoped to add a self-guided component in 2012; until then, be sure to reserve your tour at least one to two weeks in advance.
Stroll around downtown come evening (when the neon comes out to play) to discover the free, self-guided component of the 'museum.' You'll find delightful al-fresco galleries of restored vintage neon signs, including sparkling genie lamps, glowing martini glasses and 1940s motel marquees. The biggest assemblages are found at the on the 3rd St cul-de-sac just north of Fremont St.
