Las Vegas Sign Museum

The Las Vegas Sign Museum at 770 North Las Vegas Blvd. ( Bonanza and Las Vegas Blvd)  is a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in Las Vegas. There website can be found at www.neonmuseum.org  and more information can be found on Self Growth website at : http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/las-vegas-sign-museum-and-interesting-sites . Over 1700 people have written reviews on Google about the Sign Museum  and it has a 4.5 star rating out of 5 !

The Las Vegas Sign Museum is the boneyard of the old signs that use to hang at casinos and other famous places in Las Vegas. Rather than destroy the signs and the historical value the sign represent, a non profit organization  has made a museum of these old signs. The signs are rich in history and the history is explained during the self guided tour or organized tours. The signs represent history of when the mob ( Bugsy Siegel) was building and running the casinos. Just down the street is the famous Las Vegas Mob Museum where more history can be learned about the shady underworld belly that Las Vegas was once famous for. The former Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, was instrumental in getting the Las Vegas Mob Museum built. In fact, it is my understanding that Mr. Goodman represented many people who were involved in the legal system.

The Las Vegas signs were built in Las Vegas by the big sign companies that still exist locally. These signs were all hand built and the quality of craftsmanship was superb.

If you have the opportunity while you are here in Las Vegas, take the time away from the casinos and all the fun they offer to tour the Las Vegas Sign Museum. It will certainly enlighten you about the history of Las Vegas and give you a new understanding and appreciation for ” Sin City”.

Las Vegas Sign

The Las Vegas sign is a world famous sign that is recognizable by millions of people. It has historic value to the Las Vega community as it is a symbol of Las Vegas.

The 25ft Las Vegas sign is located at 5100 Las Vegas Blvd.  ( At the south end of the World Famous Las Vegas Strip) It was installed in 1959 by Western Neon Sign Company of Las Vegas. In 2008, a parking lot was added adjoining the sign so that visitors and tourists could take their picture next to the sign in a safe and orderly fashion. It was requested that the Las Vegas Sign become a landmark and in December of 2013, the State Historic Preservation Office for the State of Nevada announced that the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign had been added to the State Register of Historic Places and took its place in history.

Las Vegas has many signs and we also have a museum of old signs for people to tour through in the Downtown area of Las Vegas. Las Vegas has been on the cutting edge of sign making for decades. Many wonderful and colorful neon signs have been designed and installed through the years. With sign technology changing, led signs have taken over.
