Neon Boneyard

The Las Vegas Neon Museum is a collection of 150 retired neon signs that once lit the famously glitzy city. The highlight of the collection is the Neon Boneyard, a two acre outdoor exhibition of signs that spans the 1930s to 1990s. Idsgn toured the boneyard and came away with a wonderful Flickr photo set of their visit.

The Neon Museum was established as a non-profit organization in 1996 to collect and exhibit neon signs, the classic Las Vegas art form. Dedicated individuals from the private sector as well as corporate and government entities have worked tirelessly to promote the preservation of these national treasures. The Neon Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, study and exhibit neon signs and associated artifacts to inspire educational and cultural enrichment for diverse members of our international community
