Bright lights, big city

The Neon Museum's main exhibition area, known as the Neon Boneyard, brings together a huge array of once bright signs and letters under the Nevada sun.

The Boneyard 'showpiece'

The Museum's most popular sign is the Stardust. While its letters sit together, the galaxy of stars that made this retro-futuristic sign so famous is scattered through the Boneyard.

The Happy Shirt

This sign from Liberace's go-to dry cleaner, Steiner Cleaners, featured two sets of sleeves that used to light up to make the Happy Shirt "dance."

Hand blown

Every neon tube, including the ones on this Yucca sign, has to be hand blown.

Rust and ruin

After spending years out in the elements, plenty of The Neon Museum's signs show the kind of wear and tear you'd expect from a veteran Elvis impersonator.

Road to restoration

Even without re-blowing and lighting the Neon tubes on this Desert Rose sign, the restoration of paint and metal cost tens of thousands of dollars.
