Las Vegas is a city that is illuminated by neon signs at night. Many of these signs have become historical landmarks and city icons over the decades since they were first erected. Since the “casino bonanza” of the 1940s and 1950s, many of the businesses that these signs advertised have since vanished into history. However, the signs remain and are often derelict and abandoned after the businesses they advertised have vacated the premises.

Hence the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, aka the “Neon Boneyard” or “Neon Graveyard”. Numerous signs that once advertised casinos, wedding chapels, and more can be found here. However, visitors to the museum must register for a tour in order to visit the museum. The basic tour for out of state residents costs $18 and tours for in-state residents costs $12. They also have special wedding photo shoots that run for $75.
