Everyone loves a pretty neon sign, but have you ever seen a neon sign boneyard? We went to Las Vegas last month and visited the Neon Sign Bone Yard. When they demolish a hotel in Las Vegas, inevitably, the old neon signs end up here. The Neon Sign Bone Yard may be the most fun a photographer can have in 60 minutes. Here is what you will see.
The Neon Sign Museum is located on Las Vegas Blvd. just north of Fremont Street and downtown. They have a fantastic history book about neon signs –SPECTACULAR: A History of Las Vegas Neon – exclusive to the museum. You can only go into the gated “bone yard” on a guided tour, so you need to plan your trip and get your reservation on-line or give them a call. Each tour has about 10 people and the tour guides are knowledgeable, but they also police the yard. For safety reasons you must stay with the group; stay on the designated path; and not touch anything.
