Museum Tour: Vegas Boneyard (a.k.a The Neon Museum)

One of the main reasons I wanted to visit Vegas was to get a bit of a feel of 'old Vegas' and there was no better way than heading to The Neon Museum where the old Vegas signs go to die.

If you are a fan of typography or simply like signage then I think you might enjoy these images!


The scale of these pieces are amazing. We were given a history of where the signs used to live and how they ended up at the museum. We were also given tips on how to work out the age of the signs through the way they were constructed and the materials used.

I recommend the tour if you are in the area. I only wish I could have taken some of these signs home with me! They would look pretty amazing in an interior space.. or.. hey why not, on top of the roof of my house, ha!
Thank you to The Neon Museum for the permission to share the photographs that I took during the tour.

This post is dedicated to my friend Emily Sephton.
