THE NEON MUSEUM HOSTS WEDDINGS, EVENTS
Now Accepting Bookings for January 2021 for Events up to 200 Guests
LAS VEGAS (October 2020) – The Neon Museum provides an incomparable, open-air backdrop of hundreds of vintage Las Vegas signs for events, weddings and receptions. The museum currently accepts bookings in its North Gallery for intimate events for 50 people or fewer. Meanwhile, its main exhibition space, the Neon Boneyard is now accepting bookings for events up to 200 guests starting January 2021.
The newly curated North Gallery sits adjacent to the main collection in the Neon Boneyard. It houses 60 world-famous un-restored Las Vegas signs such as Lady Luck and the Golden Nugget. The space is ideal for guests seeking a colorful, undeniably Las Vegas-themed location for their special event.
The Neon Boneyard contains the museum’s main collection and contains more than 250 unrestored signs which are, at sunset, illuminated with ground lighting as well as over 20 electrified and restored signs which are on all the time. Signs in the boneyard include the Hard Rock Café guitar, Tim Burton’s Lost Vegas sign tower and newly relit Moulin Rouge and Stardust letters.
“We are excited to announce that we are again taking reservations for events beginning in 2021,” said Dawn Merritt, vice president and chief marketing officer, The Neon Museum. “While we still offer quick weddings anytime, we are happy to be able to provide a larger venue space to our guests starting in January.”
Quick weddings in the North Gallery include one hour for a private mini-wedding ceremony and time for a photo shoot.
In the Neon Boneyard the space must be rented for eight hours, which includes time for a wedding ceremony and reception or just a catered reception or other event, plus all set up and strike-down time.
