Last month, I had my very first Las Vegas experience — and, I think I did pretty good for a first-timer. I gambled a little (came home $75 richer), saw Celine Dion at Caesars Palace and I visited The Neon Museum. The slot machines and Ms. Dion had been on the agenda, but The Neon Museum was something my buddy and I decided to take in on a whim. And truthfully, it was one of the trip’s highlights (right up there with Celine!).
If you’re a history buff, this place is for you. The Neon Museum is home to Las Vegas’ old neon signs that once kept the city famously lit. Pieces in their collection include signage from the Moulin Rouge Hotel, the Stardust and Desert Inn. You can go on a guided tour through their “boneyard” and hear tales of the city’s fascinating past.
Apparently, many newlyweds go to the museum’s boneyard and have offbeat wedding pictures made there. Whatever your relationship status, I highly recommend you visit this place on your next Vegas adventure — you won’t regret it.
