Vintage Neon Collection – A Walk Through Time

Neon SlipperEstate Sales News visited the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, NV.  If you are a fan of vintage neon signs this is a must visit. The museum has rescued and obtained many of the old neon signs that were the highlights of the Las Vegas strip and Freemont Street in downtown Las Vegas, NV. They have been restoring many of the smaller signs and returning them in working order to various areas around Las Vegas.

The neon slipper was in front of the Silver Slipper Gambling Hall. The story goes that Howard Hughes, who lived in Las Vegas for a time was staying across from the Silver Slipper and the bright lights from the sign at night disturbed the eccentric Howard Hughes and he arranged to have it removed. The Neon Museum has restored it and placed it outside of the front of the museum. It is lit every evening. What’s old is new again. The slogan of many estate sales.

The signs have been obtained from casinos, hotels, motels, wedding chapels, mobile parks, and more. This is the largest collection of vintage neon available for the public to see that Estate Sales News knows of. It is in a desert park like setting and the museum takes you on a guided walking tour. Reservations are required as tours are limited in numbers because of the walking area.

Vintage takes many forms and we hope you will enjoy this tour of vintage Las Vegas signage.
