Neon Museum Spotlights Bygone Era of Las Vegas-- Part 1

From the November 11, 2012, Chicago Tribune by John M. Glionna. /// There is a place in Vegas known as the Neon Boneyard where the remnants of once brilliant neon signs reside today that had once graced the Moulin Rouge, Desert Inn, Golden Nugget and Stardust casinos as well as many lesser-known Vegas buildings. /// "But time moves on, especially here. In a city addicted to reinventing itself, the wrecking ball rules." I always hate to see those old (say 30+ years old) buildings imploded and signs destroyed. You always need to save some of your past. /// But now, you can see some of Las Vegas' past as the Neon Museum, located in the city's downtown, officially opened October 27, 2012. Tours are offered through the museum as well. /// --RoadDog
