(AP) Las Vegas tourists can stroll through the Sin City of yesteryear at a museum full of the town's retired neon signs.


The 2-acre Neon Museum and its visitors center opened in the fall and recently added nighttime hours. The outdoor lot boasts 150 signs, including one dating back to the 1930s that marked a restaurant for Hoover Dam construction workers.


Visitors can walk among the hulking metal relics that tout hotels long since demolished from Las Vegas streets, including the Sahara and the Stardust.


Four of the signs have been fully restored with working lights, while the others are illuminated by external floodlights.


Admission includes a guided tour. Tickets start at $12 for Nevada residents on a daytime tour and run up to $25 for nighttime tours.
