11 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit the Neon Museum

The Neon Museum in Las Vegas is a photographer’s wonderland. Situated just beyond the strip at the repurposed La Concha Motel, huge iconic signs line a two-acre desert lot. This nonprofit museum collects and exhibits historic signs, preserving the culture and history surrounding the pieces. However, the faded pastels of what used to be bright electric lures are more than a picture-perfect backdrop. The retired and lightly rusted metal giants make for a literal walk down memory lane.
