How does the Museums For All reduced price admission program work?
Museums for All is offered to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits. The program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits to visit the museum for a minimal fee of $3.00 per person, up to four people maximum per party, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Each cardholder must have their own reservation under their own name. Valid photo ID required and SNAP card required at check-in.
COVID-19 and the safety of our visitors
The Museum has re-opened! The health and well-being of our guests and employees are priority one. To that end, we have implemented the following safety measures:
- No-touch digital forehead thermometers are used to screen guests and employees
- The number of people admitted to the Museum is limited to account for social distancing
- New protective equipment has been installed at the Museum's front desk
- All staff is equipped with face masks and gloves
- All guests are required to wear protective masks with the exception of children 9 years of age or younger or those who cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition.
- All frequently touched surfaces are disinfected at least once an hour
Is the Tim Burton exhibition still open?
The Tim Burton exhibition closed in March 2020. However, the Museum still proudly hosts four of his pieces in the Boneyard that visitor's can view during their visit.

What should I wear to the Museum?
Museum-appropriate attire is required. Attire that is not appropriate for The Neon Museum (and which may result in refusal of admittance or ejection) includes, but is not limited to, bathing suits, clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics, or clothing which exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.

What do I do if I’m running late for my scheduled visit?
We’ll make every effort to catch you up to the tour. However, please note, guests arriving more than 15 minutes late may forfeit their place. Please call us as soon as you realize you may be late at 702-387-6366 ext. 101.
Do you ever cancel tours due to the weather?
As the Neon Boneyard is an outdoor collection, all scheduled tours are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather; however, we seldom cancel for rain. If a tour is cancelled, we will attempt to place you on the next available tour wherever possible or provide a full refund.
Do you offer private tours of the Boneyard?
Can we walk around the Neon Boneyard by ourselves to see the signs?
Yes. We do offer general admission tickets to the Neon Museum Boneyard on a limited basis so you can visit the signs at your leisure. Museum interpreters are stationed throughout the yard to answer any questions you may have about the establishment of Las Vegas, the growth of downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard, the role of small businesses in the community and the use of themed properties. Visit the tickets page for availability.
How many of your signs are restored and light up?
There are currently twenty-four working signs in the Neon Boneyard. Seventeen are fully restored while two others, the Riviera and Fitzgeralds, were received in working condition. You can learn about which signs are in working condition on our blog! Sign restoration is a very involved and costly process and the electrical grid in place can only support a limited number of signs. Therefore, the capacity for sign restoration in the Neon Boneyard exhibition space is limited. The bulk of the sign collection is illuminated by ground-level spotlights.
Can I take an earlier tour if I arrive early?
No. Your ticket is time specific and is a guaranteed space. Walk-up visitors can buy a ticket for a tour before your time, but they have done so on a very limited first-come, first-served basis and risk not being sold a ticket.
