Las Vegas is a strange city. We mean that in the best way, of course. In comparison to other cities like New York or even Los Angeles, it's relatively an infant. Also, it seems like we're constantly taking down old relics to make way for newer, more extravagant palaces of leisure. This is why The Neon Museum is such a gem in this town that, at first glance, is seemingly devoid of history.
Located in downtown Las Vegas, The Neon Museum is a non-profit collaborative effort started by individuals, businesses and government entities who work together to help preserve and share these historically significant treasures from Las Vegas' glittery past.
Whenever guests ask us locals for suggestions of fun things to do in this city besides gambling, buffets and partaking in weekend-long debauchery, The Neon Museum usually comes up pretty high on the list. It's a great way to learn more about Vegas' history while taking in all the retro (and yes, sometimes gaudy) fabulousness.
