New Additions to the Neon Museum

One of the great, lesser known attractions in Las Vegas is the Neon Museum. This little gem is essentially a final resting place for old Las Vegas signs from the hotels of yester-year. On Friday, The Neon Museum posted a couple photos on its facebook wall, announcing the latest additions to its collection! The Neon Museum has acquired pieces from the two most recent Las Vegas resort & casino casualties.

First, it picked up a curved sign off of the recently closed O’Sheas facade:

Second there is a stack of coins from the old Fitzgerald’s (now re-branded as The D) pot of gold sign:

The Las Vegas beat will always march on, and the rate at which hotels and casinos become antiquated in this town is truly staggering. At least there’s a place that is collecting some great memorabilia that will always serve as the perfect destination to get your fix of old Las Vegas nostalgia.
