The Neon Museum/The Boneyard
Before or after your fabulous Las Vegas wedding, you can add additional photography to your wedding package at the Neon Sign Museum/The Boneyard. The on-site Neon Museum is currently under construction and the Boneyard is only available for photography (private appointment only) and not wedding ceremonies at this time.
The extraordinary signs have been rescued from demolition and include signs from the Golden Nugget (built in 1946), Binion’s Horseshoe (Benny Binion served time in Leavenworth Penitentiary from 1953-1957 for tax evasion), and the Silver Slipper (built in 1950 and purchased by billionaire Howard Hughes in 1968), just to name a few. The Las Vegas Club installed the first neon sign on a casino in 1930.
Most of the signs are exhibited in “The Boneyard” where they serve as inspiration to fascinated artists, students, historians and designers. It is home to some of the most treasured and world-famous signs of Las Vegas – Caesars Palace, Binions Horsehoe, Golden Nugget, Silver Slipper, and, most recently the Stardust. The three-acre Neon Boneyard houses more than 150 historic, non-restored signs. As part of our guided tours, the signs are available to be viewed at ground level and up close. Each has been donated or loaned by individuals, businesses and sign companies such as Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO).
The Neon Museum is in the process of rehabilitating the historic La Concha Motel lobby for use as a visitor’s center. In 2006 the building was saved from destruction and moved to the Boneyard site, and in 2007 the structure was reassembled. The La Concha, a swooping curvilinear example of mid-century modern architecture, was designed by famed African-American architect Paul Revere Williams. The building is on the City of Las Vegas Historic Register.
So, take home a piece of Las Vegas history, by taking home some of the most unique, dramatic, and stunning wedding photographs ever taken and add The Neon Museum/Boneyard to any of our fabulous Scenic Las Vegas Wedding packages!
