According to a Neon Museum worker, most locals don’t visit this museum…many may not even know about it. So it’s basically a very touristy thing to do. Usually, I get on a high horse about doing touristy things, but this time I am SO HAPPY that I paid a visit to this little treasure. Along with that cute cactus in the picture above, there were plenty of signs full of history. Here are some of my favorites…
The daytime tour was incredible. I can only imagine how pretty all the signs look at night. FYI, not all the signs are lit up. Some do not have enough light bulbs or other electric needs (???) to be turned on. Also, some get moved back to bring others to the front…this changes it up a bit and lets all the signs get some show time. I highly recommend you visit on your next Vegas stop. I know I can’t wait to go for an evening tour or maybe even rent out the space for a special occasion. Here are some things to keep in mind…
- Wear closed-toe shoes. Yes, you can go in sandals, but the rocks and metal pushed by the wind can and will hurt if your toes are out in the open.
- Tickets are FINAL SALE. Plan accordingly and act fast (tickets tend to sell out!). Look at the times available here.
- No backpacks. I got lucky with the 90s style one I had, but they could change their mind.
- No photoshoots. You can book one separately, if you want. It’ll cost you, though.
- Take water!! It may not seem like you’re dehydrated because the sun’s hiding, but you are. You’ll need water throughout the tour.
Happy Touring, my fellow Vegas-lovers!
