The Neon Museum [Las Vegas]

The Neon Museum (@NeonMuseum) have been on my list of places to visit since I first saw picture of the place and that was the first thing that went on my recent Vegas trip to do list. Love taking pictures, Instagram-natic?! That's the perfect spot for the likes of me and I have been trying to choose some of my faves that we took that day but I still end up with that many =P

"Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic and cultural enrichment. The Neon Museum campus includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard, a visitors’ center housed inside the former La Concha Motel lobby and the Neon Boneyard North Gallery which houses additional rescued signs and is available for weddings, special events, photo shoots and educational programs."

They do not allow walk in and must book their guided tour which is $18 per person. Make sure to buy your tickets online in advance in order to get the date and time you want.

The guided tour was very fun and informative, this was definitely one of the highlight of the trip.

The Stardust sign was my favorite and the biggest one, it was so big that the sign was cut up and scattered across the place. Wish I could have seen it during the night as well when it light up.

Verdict :
Loved it, definitely one of the highlight of our trip ♥♥♥

Tip :
Make sure to book you time a date in advance. 
It's off the strip, so you would have to take a taxi or would be great to rent a car for the day to explore the neighborhood which include The Little White Chapel and  Fremont St (aka Old Vegas).
Or even drop by here for lunch since you have the car, save the taxi fare which is quite expensive and can add up. 
And maybe drop by one of their two Outlet Mall for some shopping.
