Without a doubt, the highlight of our visit to Las Vegas last year was the guided tour of the Neon Museum’s Boneyard.
The tour is actually a superb introduction to the very colorful history of Las Vegas.
The museum houses discarded neon and incandescent signs from Vegas’ glory days.
The museum’s limited funds allow for the restoration of only a few signs each year.
The restored signs are displayed in the downtown Las Vegas block known as the “Fremont Experience.”
The rest of the collection — a hodgepodge of more than 150 historic signs — is on display at a two acre lot known as “The Boneyard.”
