Neon Museum information
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 its digs and hoped to add a self-guided component; until this is in place, be sure to reserve your tour at least a few 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 on the 3rd St cul-de-sac just north of Fremont St.
