A trip to The Neon Museum entails a visit to the Cultural Corridor in Las Vegas, which is home to a variety of different museums and art exhibits. Parking in the area isn't as difficult as down on the Strip, but tourists are still advised to catch a cab or an Uber to avoid hassle and parking fees. There is free parking at the Neon Museum, but it fills up quickly on busy days. Once at the location, visitors will be able to take in all of the sights of the Neon Museum Campus. From the outside looking in The Neon Museum looks like a massive, sprawling art exhibit that takes parts of Las Vegas' history and puts them on display. Visitors will be able to traverse two acres of history to look at over 260 different neon signs from throughout the ages. There are two sections to The Neon Museum: the Neon Boneyard Park and the Boneyard itself. The Neon Boneyard Park is the primary attraction as it spans two full acres and houses nearly 200 neon signs on display. You'll find signs from The Golden Nugget, Stardust, Horseshoe and Caesars Palace. The Boneyard is the outdoor walking path that leads you through some of the bigger signs around. Visitors can look at the signs up close, and they can also look at them from underneath. There are guided tours available for rent, but they are at the whims of the weather. The Neon Museum is an outdoor attraction and as such storms can cause trip cancellations. There are night tours where visitors can see all of the signs lit up and on display as well as daytime tours. Visitors should note that night tours are better for older children because there are giant signs made with rusty metal that you will be inspecting.
