LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Neon Museum welcomed its 1 millionth visitor! For the special honor, Nazarey David was gifted with a custom neon sign, a free night at the Wynn and a gift box. The Vegas local is a member of the outdoor museum for retired neon signs.
David’s sign was custom-created by Hartlauer Signs for the occasion.
“It’s definitely cool to see the signs,” she said. “It definitely gives you an appreciation for how much this city has grown, and I really like feeling that. When I come here, I definitely remember where I come from, where I was born.”
The museum has seen tremendous growth over the past few years.
“We’ve had double-digit visitor growth for the last four to five years,” revealed museum CEO, Rob McCoy. “We see that trajectory continuing, especially now with Tim Burton.”
McCoy estimates the museum will see its two millionth visitor in three to four years.
