28 Sep Neon Boneyard
Las Vegas casinos have donated many of their signature over-the-top neon signage to the Neon Museum for its different galleries. The Neon Boneyard is home to more than 200 donated and rescued signs dating from the 1930’s to the present day. Located within a two-acre outdoor museum space, the unrestored collection includes signs from businesses, motels and celebrated casino resorts originally located throughout the Las Vegas valley. A favorite with Hollywood filmmakers, it has served as a setting for music videos and science fiction movies. Tour information may be found here.
The Downtown Gallery (Fremont Street at Las Vegas Blvd) and the Las Vegas Signs Project (located on Las Vegas Blvd. between Sahara and Washington Street) feature 15 electrified, restored signs installed as public art throughout the downtown area.
