    The tour was the perfect length of time (one hour) and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was super interesting to learn about Las Vegas culture as well.

    This tour is worth every penny. Nicole was one of the best tour guides I've ever seen, she cares about every piece in the collection and knows so much about all of it. Bring some water on your tour!

    fabulous place I went there when it hadn't been fixed up yet - 2011 or 2012. and it's so great! I suggested that the big slipper outside should be a magnet! the postcard machine is a fantastic idea!!!

    Not enough signs are lit up to make it worth a night tour, but if you go on an overcast day they might have the lights on.

    Awesome tour and sign yard. They don't let you take large bags out, no free wondering by yourself, and often run out of tickets early in the day.

    A must-do tour in Vegas. It's really an hour-long guided history tour of Vegas, using the signs as storytelling devices.

    You have to do a guided tour. No option to see it without tour, which is very disappointing. We got there and next tour wasn't for an hour. They are missing out on revenue by forcing tour. 👎

    It's a "tour-only" museum, so make a tour reservation in advance. They have both night and day tours, but both cost $$.

    É bom reservar as visitas com antecedência (2/3 dias). Quem for descer na freemont, dá para ir andando, não é tão longe. Para quem for à tarde, leve boné e água. Só não dá para fotografar direito.

    ¡Gran colección de letreros rescatados, tienen tours en la noche y puedes ver algunos encendidos!

    Ya tienen tours por la noche. La mayoría de los letreros no están encendidos -desafortunadamente- pero sí iluminados dramáticamente. Una manera distinta de ver Las Vegas a través de sus letreros.
