The Neon Museum, but to those who know Las Vegas, for years it's affectionately called "The Boneyard".
...and if you've never seen it, you are missing an art form unique to our exciting city; namely, the fabulous hotel marquees that decorated Las Vegas over the years...that have gone the way of time.
It's where the famous old hotel marquees "go to die", yet remain alive for those who enjoy looking at the glory days of the past.
...and here's an idea of what you can expect once you get there.
Until recently the Neon Museum was closed to the public; but now, tours are available most any day.
With over 150 rescued signs of the past, take a walk down memory lane and feel the presence of The Rat Pack, Louie Prima & Keely Smith, and so many others who made Las Vegas, the "Entertainment Capital of the World" while they performed at these legendary locations.
Over the past couple of years, thank goodness, a number of these landmarks have been restored and line Fremont Street as a reminder of days gone by, but there are so many more for you to see !
The "Boneyard" is located at 821 Las Vegas Blvd. North, just south of Cashman Field.
Admission for Seniors and/or Nevada residents is only $12.00, and is available only through guided tour, Monday through Saturday, starting at 10:00am and closing at sunset.
Here's the tour information.

It's a part of the unique history of our town; and I might add, would be a great spot to see when friends and relatives "invade".
Orleans Showroom...A Hidden Local's Deal
Like various forms of musical and comedy entertainment ? When was the last time you visited The Orleans Hotel & Casino, off the Strip, located at:
4500 Tropicana Avenue
(corner of Tropicana and Decatur Ave.)
Did you know that LOCALS CAN RECEIVE A 30% DISCOUNT on Showroom tickets?
...but there is something you have to do when you buy them.
First, this deal applies to purchases made AT THE BOX OFFICE only.
Second, just mentioning you're a "local" will get you nothing but a BLANK STARE...you have to say "I'm a Local, and the Promotion Code is the word....STAY".
No, it doesn't mean you have to be a hotel guest, it's just a PROMO WORD that has to be used when you buy the tickets.
No promo word "Stay"...No discount.
Third, have your Players Card and Nevada ID handy.
That's all there's to it.
If you've never been to their Showroom, the acoustics are great and you can't get a bad seat, no matter where you it's located....and you won't find a more comfortable seat in Las Vegas.
..and the entertainment venues are the best !
Here's a virtual tour of the Orleans showroom. and their upcoming guests.
Just another reason to get out of here...and see entertainment available, only in this great town we live it.....Las Vegas !
