Visitor Tips and News About Neon Boneyard
I have been to the Neon Boneyard twice, most recently in August of 2011, and what a treat this is for lovers of old neon signs. The sheer amount of signage is staggering. I particularly love the way the signs are laid out: some are haphazardly thrown together, and some are grouped by theme. A docent from the museum accompanies you on the tour, but you can elect to either listen to the guided tour they give, or you can walk at your own pace and take pictures at your leisure. The latter option is good if you want to take pictures of all of the signs without being bogged down by the "guided tour." Either way, this attraction is not to be missed![Mark Asaro, 07/04/2012]

Open only to pre-arranged tours, but you can always drive by on Encanto and peek over the fence. Neon Boneyard Park, although built, is still locked and reportedly won't open until the adjacent Neon Museum opens in Spring 2012.
