Neon Museum

Las Vegas Attractions: Neon Museum

No place epitomizes neon more than Las Vegas. From the earliest days of the element's discovery, neon has been used to light up the Nevada desert along Fremont Street and the Las Vegas Strip. Although Las Vegas is constantly changing, many of the city's historic neon signs have been preserved and restored to their original glory. Eleven of these signs make up the free Neon Museum walking tour.

Not a museum, in the strictest sense, the Neon Museum is a series of public art displays that include restored signs, from the 1940s to the present, installed in and around Fremont Street, in downtown Las Vegas.

Included are "Aladdin's Lamp" from the former Aladdin Hotel, the "Hacienda Horse and Rider" sign from the Hacienda Hotel, the "Flame Restaurant" sign, the "Nevada Motel" sign, and the shining cocktail glass on the "Red Barn Bar" sign. The signs are available to view 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are illuminated from dusk until dawn. It's a great way to experience Las Vegas history.
