Neon Boneyard

This morning, I visited the Neon Boneyard (aka Neon Museum) here in Las Vegas. They give guided tours by appointment only…no meandering on your own. The tour was interesting and is a good way to learn a little about “old Las Vegas” history. Having been a regular visitor to Las Vegas since 1968, I remembered many of the old signs.
The museum opened in 2012 at its current location and is a 501C3 corporation – meaning that all of the revenue they receive goes right back into the exhibits and operating costs.
I arrived early for my appointment time so I waited in the Neon Boneyard Park adjacent to the museum.

The exhibits (signs) are in random order and appear dilapidated, but some are in fairly good shape considering their age. We can all relate to that, can’t we? The pictures below were taken at random during the tour.

All in all, it was worth the money ($15.00 senior discount) just for the history lesson. However, next time I’ll pay the extra $10.00 for a night tour so I can view the signs in all of their splendor – illuminated. If you have an extra hour on your next visit to Las Vegas, I can recommend this tour. Their website will give you additional information if you’re interested.
