The Neon Boneyard Park

Right next door to the Las Vegas Neon Museum, on the street side of the parking lot, is the Neon Boneyard Park.

The sign is highly visible from the street, and in fact, if you miss seeing the outlandish Jetsons-architecture main building, the Boneyard Park sign will serve as a landmark for you.

There were a few people wandering around the park on the day that I visited the Neon Museum Boneyard, so it was nice and quiet. No kids running around, no illicit (or even licit) couples making out, no dogs running about.

It was nice, it was peaceful, it was ... cold, actually, so I hurried inside the museum itself.

If you want a place to picnic, they’ve got benches and tables there, plus a stage where entertainers can perform. A number of informational kiosks make it a nice place to rest your tootsies and learn something about Las Vegas other than just gambling and shows. 

The park opened in 2010 (a plaque told me that). The La Concha museum building opened in 2012, I visited in 2012, and who knows when the little birdie dropped its calling card on top of the plaque pedestal.
