A distinct museum of signs named as “Neon Museum” in Las Vegas is an incredible destination. The museum covers an area of 6 acres (2.4ha). The Neon Museum was established in 1996 as a joint venture of Allied Arts Council of Southern Nevada and the City of Las Vegas. The unique collection of signs is worth a visit.
The prominent parts in the premises of Neon Museum include La Concha Motel lobby and Fremont Street Experience in Boneyard. Some of the famous signs include La Concha, Moulin Rouge Hotel, Desert Inn, Caesars Palace, Algiers, Las Vegas Club, Yucca, Sahara, Tropicana, Frontier and Stardust signs.
Several signs were restored by Yong Electric Sign Company. Several signs were destroyed due to exposure to several elements. The reverse coloured lights have been used to give the signs the illusion of being lit. The recently restored signs include the famous Silver Slipper, the Neon Boneyard City Park (next to the museum) and Moulin Rouge Hotel.
