Resorts come and go in Las Vegas, but much of the colorful signage from years past now resides at the city’s newest attraction.
With their countless bulbs and seemingly endless strands of gas-filled tubing, 150 glitzy signs take center stage at the Neon Museum, set to open Saturday in downtown Las Vegas.
During guided walks through the outdoor exhibit, guests come face-to-face with iconic signs from long-gone hotels that helped shape the city’s colorful history.
Signs saved from the scrap heap include those from the Desert Inn, Frontier, Moulin Rouge, Silver Slipper and Stardust. Although the signs aren’t electrified, guides promise tours full of anecdotes and trivia.
