Located in fabulous downtown Las Vegas, the Neon Museum is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to preserving the rich history of the city through its most iconic art forms, the neon sign. The Neon Museum’s collection consists of three components:  the Neon Boneyard, the Downtown Gallery and the Las Vegas Signs project.

The Neon Boneyard is home to over 150 donated and rescued signs dating from the 1930’s to present day.  Located within a two-acre outdoor museum space, the unrestored collection includes signs from businesses, motels and celebrated casino resorts originally located throughout the Las Vegas valley.

The Downtown Gallery (Fremont Street at Las Vegas Blvd) and the Las Vegas Signs Project (located on Las Vegas Blvd. between Sahara and Washington Street) feature 15 electrified, restored signs installed as public art throughout the downtown area.  These signs are available for viewing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

30-Foot Cowboy Stands TAll

What makes a really great sign?

I’ve lived in Denver all my life and this old Cowboy landmark still amazes me. He towers over Federal Blvd. in North Denver. He stands 30 feet tall and guards the entrance to the Rustic Ranch RV Park. He is made of concrete and the paint is still in great shape. I can’t imagine trying to build this high-impact type sign today. What would it cost? I hope he stands tall for many more years.
