Want To See A History Of Las Vegas? Check Out The Neon Museum. It Is Worth It
Well it was a nice vacation, and it is good to be back. Every time I go to Las Vegas, I make an effort to see a place that you might only find in Vegas. I had a few friends tell me that one place that might be worth my time. That place was the Neon Museum.
They are located on Las Vegas BLVD. It is about a 20 minute walk from Freemont street. The Neon Museum collects, preserves, studies and exhibits iconic Las Vegas neon signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment. They are a 501c(3) non-profit.
One of the options you have is to not only take pictures of all the signs, but there is an option to have a tour guide, and they will give you some more detailed history of the signs that you may see. If you go a little earlier, it isn't as expensive. But you won't see the signs all lit up.
Their Facebook page you can access HERE and they always have some different events going on. You are encouraged to purchase your tickets early. I was just able to purchase one when they opened, but if you are bringing a bunch of people, it may not be a bad idea. You can also check out their website HERE.
I had a lot of fun walking around and learning about a bit of the history of some of these Vegas signs. Check out the gallery I put together below, and if you ever travel to Las Vegas, this place is worth a short trip to check out.
