Las Vegas Neon Museum

Every year at WPPI, I noticed photographers frequented the Las Vegas Neon Museum for photography workshops, wedding portraits or engagement sessions. I was always intrigued, but for some reason never made it out until we recently moved to Vegas and made it one of our local adventures.

This was the first time I heard about the dying art of neon and how it must be made by hand. Even the sign below installed by the city is LED and not claimed to be part of the actual neon museum.

Tips for your visit:

  • I highly suggest you go on a day time tour. I was pretty much shooting at ISO 1600-2000 the entire time. You are not allowed to bring a tripod unless you book a photo tour, photo shoot, or private event nor is there time to set one up because you have to stay with the group. Only a few neon signs can light up themselves. The majority were lit by LED lights that change colors.
  • Bring a wide angle lens since you can’t free roam. I could have used my 16-35mm lens instead of my 35 mm on a full frame body. You are only allowed to bring 1 body and 1 lens, so make it count!
  • Adult admission is $18 ($12 with a Nevada ID, students, 65+! Children under 6 are free.)
