Neon Museum, Las Vegas
Within this captivating museum, you'll discover a treasure trove of neon signs dating back to the 1930s, when the neon craze first took hold. The vast collection resides in the expansive two-acre outdoor space known as the Young Electric Sign Company Boneyard. Here, these signs patiently await restoration before being reintroduced to various locations throughout the city. With over 150 signs eagerly awaiting a new lease on life, the museum is a testament to the preservation of Las Vegas' luminous heritage.
If you can't make it to the actual museum, fret not, for some of these magnificent signs have found a home in and around the Fremont Street Experience. Among them, you'll encounter the iconic Hacienda Horse and Rider that once graced the Hacienda Hotel in 1967, the enchanting Aladdin's Lamp from the Aladdin Hotel in 1966, the timeless 1961 sign from the Flame Restaurant, the illuminating Nevada Hotel sign that first lit up in 1950, and the vibrant Dot's Flowers sign from a florist shop dating back to 1949.
