Like something straight out of Fallout: New Vegas, the Neon Museum helps preserve Vegas’ hotel sign history, collecting all the classic bright goodness that used to dominate the Vegas skies into a Neon Boneyard for the hotels’ fallen crowns. These casino resorts may be a thing of the past, but seeing that history in massive representation, all in one place is certainly not a sight to be missed.
The non-profit museum was founded in 1996, dedicated to preserving the signs for historic, educational and cultural value. There are nearly 150 signs in the collection (4 are restored) with distinct history for each one such as the people who made them and the inspirations behind the logo. The signs date back as far as the 1930’s to present day. The Neon Boneyard requires a guided tour ticket.
Besides the Neon Boneyard, the visitor center for the museum is located inside the former La Concha Motel lobby and the Neon Boneyard North Gallery which features more signs. If you ever want a break from your typical Vegas party scene, not to mention a walk down Fallout lane, give the Neon Museum a visit and bring your cameras!
The Neon Museum is located on 770 Las Vegas Blvd. North, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
