6 In LAS VEGAS/ MUSEUMS/ NORTH AMERICA/ TRAVEL

Going Downtown in Las Vegas to the Neon Museum

A trip to Las Vegas conjures images of pool parties, casinos and drive-thru weddings not visits to Museums! But whilst I love all those Vegas activities, every time I visit I try and adventure a little off the strip to find some of the other wonders that surround the city.

On my last visit I took a trip downtown to The Neon Museum, a non-profit museum founded in 1996 to showcase a collection of iconic signs from Las Vegas hotels and strip and to preserve the history of these important pieces.

las-vegas-neon-museum-2Due to the nature of the exhibit the museum is only open for 1 hour guided tours which should be booked well in advance of your visit to avoid disappointment. The tour includes a detailed history of the signs and the opportunity to capture some pretty awesome pictures at the same time!

So next time you are in Vegas, make sure to find some time between the partying to visit!

    Oh my goodness, this looks so cool! I have yet to get to Las Vegas – I missed it this trip, but hope to get there next time. Definitely will add this place to my things to do in Vegas.

    Great pics! I loved the Neon Museum. I hope to go back again for a night tour to see the signs lit up. Downtown LV is so interesting.
