Vegas Spotlight: The Neon Museum

March 17, 2014

Hello, friends!  I am so excited to share the final installment in my mini Las Vegas tour:

The Neon Museum

The Neon Museum in Las Vegas is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the iconic vintage signs that illuminate the strip.  Derek and I took the one hour tour offered by the museum and it did not disappoint.  It was so cool to see these amazing signs up close and our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city of Las Vegas and the vintage signs.  We learned all about the founding of Vegas in 1905 and the mobsters that helped build the city.

The best part about the museum, of course, was the opportunity to take some really fun photos of the beautifully restored and arranged signs, which is exactly what I did!  I took what felt like a million pictures, and I had even more fun editing, so I really hope you like them!

As you can see, I played around with various types of filters and “lomo,” or lomography, effects.  I left a few before and after shots, too, just for fun!

If you want to see the rest of my mini Las Vegas tour, here is a quick overview of my trip, here is a spotlight on The Auto Collections at The Quad hotel and casino, and I even included a Thrift Style Thursday post in sin city.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and, as always, thanks for reading!  – Kristi :)

PS. All of these photos were taken by myself (or Derek, I got a few mixed up!), so please, if you are going to use them, credit me and link back to my site here.  They are also not available for commercial use per the Neon Museum’s policy, so feel free to share, but share responsibly!  Thanks!  :)
