I’ll bet no city on earth has more neon lights than Las Vegas. Here’s a trick question: where do those lights go when they die?
Answer: the Neon Boneyard.
On October 27 the Neon Boneyard will become the Neon Museum so you can see the signs up close and personal. The two-acre site on Las Vegas Boulevard North next to the Cashman Center has more than 150 signs spanning seven decades. The motel lobby of the La Concha hotel (which used to be across the street from the now Mandalay Bay), was trucked downtown to serve as the visitor’s center.
There are iconic signs from the long gone Stardust, Moulin Rouge and Desert Inn.
Docents will give guided tours every half hour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is $18 for adults, $12 for students and free for children six and under.
