The Neon BoneYard of SIN City

07 Mar

The Neon Bone Yard at SIN City

The Neon BoneYard is an open-air museum of retired neon signs that once lit up the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. The museum was established as a non-profit organization in 1996 to “collect, preserve, study and exhibit iconic Las Vegas neon signs for educational, historic, and cultural enrichment”.  Visits to the neon museum is by appointment only.

There are over 150 neon signs collected and most of them are on display in the Neon BoneYard. As the place is filled with broken glass and sharp metal pieces, visitors are asked to be very careful when moving around in tight quarters. The museum host once told a story about a photographer getting cut badly by broken glass tubes while backing up to frame a shot without checking where he was going. So be warned!!

Morning sun rays brought life back to these old neon light buls
