Las Vegas Strip History in Lights – Strolling the Neon Museum and Boneyard
See the Neon Museum next time you’re in Las Vegas
In our first season, TTH got to tape a segment at one of the coolest attractions in Las Vegas you may have never heard of. It’s called the Neon Museum and boneyard, and it’s a must see.
The 2 acre Neon museum houses a tremendous collection of torn down neon signage from Las Vegas past. As you know, Las Vegas is constantly reinventing itself, and those iconic signs from yesteryear find there way to the scrap heap. The non profit Neon museum collects these signs as has arranged them into a nice strolling museum with over 150 signs.
You’ll see iconic signs from the 1930’s to today. Some of my favorite stand outs are the Stardust hotel sign and the Golden Nugget. The signs are viewed at ground level, and reflect the style of the time.
This is definitely the kind of family friendly place you can take your older kids too, but you probably don’t want to take really small kids, because there’s a lot of light bulbs within reach.
