Things You’ve Never Done in Las Vegas: Neon Museum

Ever wonder where all those exorbitant neon signs of old Las Vegas wound up?  Through the hard work and dedication of an assortment of individuals, along with corporate and government entities, these lost pieces of unique architectural works are on display at the appropriately named “Neon Museum.” The 150+ signs, some dating back to the 1930’s, tell a unique story in the development of the Las Vegas glitz and the incredible engineering prowess of those who made it possible.   Established as a non-profit organization in 1996, the Neon Museum has dedicated itself to the preservation of this unique Las Vegas art form continually taking in retired signage to add to their already impressive collection.  Though visitation has been cut down, the Neon Museum is currently  restoring the historic “La Concha” Motel Lobby to use as its visitor center to better suit the public and support tourism.
