    Great ~30 min stop if you miss the old Las Vegas. A quick outside tour of decommissioned signs. Only about 10% that still light up so daytime should be on par with nighttime

    The tour was the perfect length of time (one hour) and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was super interesting to learn about Las Vegas culture as well.

    fabulous place I went there when it hadn't been fixed up yet - 2011 or 2012. and it's so great! I suggested that the big slipper outside should be a magnet! the postcard machine is a fantastic idea!!!

    This tour is worth every penny. Nicole was one of the best tour guides I've ever seen, she cares about every piece in the collection and knows so much about all of it. Bring some water on your tour!

    Wow, so much history and the volunteers are have a lot of information to share. Ask questions, there’s no place like this. Our next visit will include the BRILLIANT tour.

    Take a night tour — definitely worth it! This sign is celebrating the founding of Las Vegas in 1905

    The Brilliant Tour at night is basically a novelty light projection show set to music. You are led to one spot surrounded by old casino signs, and stand for a 20ish min presentation. Worth it? Sure.

    Amazing and must visit in Vegas. If you go get your tickets in advance because tours do sell out. But one of the best places I have been in Vegas

    LOVED THE TOUR! I'd go a few more times to attempt to remember all of the factoids the tour guide will shower you with. We went at night - spectacular!

    This was on my list to visit, but tickets always sold out. Buy in advance, so worth it. Great tour of Vegas history! Well done!

    Very interesting and cool that they preserved the old signs. But honestly, it took us about 10 mins to see it all and it’s HOT as blazes during the August day!

    During night tours, the lights will be on. Guided tours are best. Pay a little more and you can get a dual ticket for Mob Museum at a discount. Buy in advance to get the time you want!

    Great fun if you're into signs, history or just the awesomeness of Vegas's lights. If visiting in the summer, try to get the first tour of the day or do the night tour to avoid the heat..

    Purchase your tickets online. They sell out quickly. Also, allow enough time to make it to the museum. Traffic is heavy at time in Vegas.

    A must do when visiting Vegas! An exciting combination of history, design, and art. Do it at night!

    This formerly appointment-only collection is now open to the public: 150 neon signs date back as far as the 1930's and include iconic displays from the Moulin Rouge, the Desert Inn, and the Stardust.

    The tours at the Neon Museum sell out months in advance. A walk through the museum's famous "Boneyard" (where neon goes to die) is a must-see. Read more

    Away from the cacophony of the Strip and Fremont District, is this little gem. Take a nighttime tour. (And for a chuckle, check out the Google map satellite view too - look for the 'skull')

    This is where you'll get to see the cool and vintage signs from the city's past. This is Las Vegas history told by means of old signs from old casinos and other Vegas attractions.

    Great non-profit museum dedicated to displaying, rehabilitating and refurbishing the classic artisan neon signs that defined Las Vegas. your ticket price goes towards their efforts, great tour!

    Awesome tour and sign yard. They don't let you take large bags out, no free wondering by yourself, and often run out of tickets early in the day.

    Cool that they saved the old signs. But hit as blazes(it’s all outdoors-no shade) and there was only 10-15 mins of stuff to see. Wouldn’t Pay the entrance fit that again.

    Best part about Vegas. This outdoor sign graveyard exhibits a fascinating history. Go at sunset so you can see the signs in the day light and lit up.

    Cool place. Check out old neon signs from the Vegas strip in this walking museum. They have dedicated themselves to preserving Las Vegas' historical iconic art.

    You can only see the signs with a guided tour and tours sell out quickly. Day tours are $18 and night tours are $25. If u are a NV resident you get a discount.

    Perfect time to visit is March/April before it gets too hot. Such great insight into not only the history of neon, but the back stories on Vegas.

    A refuge for decommissioned exhibits of a quintessential Las Vegas art. The collection currently tops 150 pieces from Las Vegas motels, businesses, casinos and resorts from the 1930s to the '90s

    It's a "tour-only" museum, so make a tour reservation in advance. They have both night and day tours, but both cost $$.

    You MUST buy separate tickets for the boneyard tour and the Brilliant show. There is No combo ticket. No cameras but cellphone pics ok.
