You may view the collection through either an hour-long guided tour, a self-guided tour or on a limited-access basis. If you are on a guided tour, we ask that you stay with your interpreter at all times. If you need to leave for any reason, please inform your interpreter and they will request a staff escort. The 2.25-acre campus includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard, which features more than 200 signs, 11 of which are restored, a visitors' center housed inside the former La Concha Motel lobby, and Brilliant!, a light projection exhibit in the North Gallery.
The Neon Museum collection also includes nine restored signs that are installed throughout the city and can be viewed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Information about these signs is available here. Since its founding in 1996, the Neon Museum has also collected original sign renderings and blueprints, as well as photographs and oral histories, and continues to build its research library and archives. In addition, the Neon Museum also collects sign related ephemera such as matchbooks, ashtrays, postcards, and casino chips.
The Neon Museum visitors’ center is located inside the historic La Concha Motel lobby.
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.
The North Gallery sits adjacent to the Museum and showcases more unrestored signs from our collection.
In 1996, The Neon Museum officially “opened” with the installation of its first refurbished sign, the Hacienda Horse and Rider, at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street.
