The Collections department recently received a small assortment of matchbooks from a museum guest who visited Las Vegas in 1965.
Riviera 50th Anniversary
When the Riviera closed in 2015, the Neon Museum obtained a small collection of DVDs from the property, which included old video promotions and photographs of events.
Behind the Scenes Spectaculars
We recently revisited a collection that came to us during the summer of 2015.
Back in 2011 and 2015, a donor took photographs of the closings of both the Sahara.
Signs with Multiple Lives
As the Collections department continued with organizing and cataloging the collection, another photo stood out.
After finally processing and returning the Federal Heath collection, we moved on to scanning a collection donated to us by sign designer Charles Barnard.
Greetings from America
This is one of the most wonderful photos from the Federal Heath collection. It shows two very important people in the Las Vegas sign design world: Betty Willis and Brian “Buzz” Leming.
