Founded in 1996, The Neon Museum is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment.
Many are curious about the signs housed in the outdoor storage lot known as the “Boulevard Gallery.” While the space is currently off-limits to visitors, we have highlighted a few signs on the blog in the past.
Internationally acclaimed artist Victor Ehikhamenor’s 2020 residency at The Neon Museum served as an opportunity for the museum to grow and adapt to the way it provides access to visiting artist’s work.
We've previously looked at a few signatures on the signs that were perhaps left by those who painted and maintained them. Signs typically require regular maintenance whether neon or more modern LED displays. Sign companies often monitor the landscape and send out workers to check for burned out lights or other issues so they can later be repaired.
