Volunteer Glow: Meet docent Bette LaCombe

Volunteers are an integral part of our mission at the Neon Museum. In fact, the museum couldn’t meet the needs of all its visitors and provide them a memorable experience without the assistance of these selfless Las Vegans.  

Meet Bette LaCombe, a former New Yorker and IBM employee for 35 years. She’s one of our dedicated volunteers who have supported the museum for many years as a member. You’ll find the LaCombe name on our Electronic Promenade. She began volunteering for the Neon Museum as a docent in the summer of 2013 and also volunteers for the AARP and KNPR public radio. 

Bette is no stranger to volunteering at museums. When she retired to Las Vegas in 2002, she donated time at the Liberace Museum as a docent and conducted more than 500 tours before it closed.

She enjoys sharing her knowledge of Las Vegas and the Neon Boneyard with visitors because she says it keeps her young.
