The Ugly Duckling Returns to The Neon Museum Boneyard After Restoration

July 16, 2019 Attraction No Comments Email Email

WHAT:
The whimsical Ugly Duckling sign has returned home to the Neon Museum’s Boneyard after receiving extensive restoration and refurbishment. The popular, double-sided sign has been re-electrified in all its glory for the public to enjoy during boneyard admission hours.

Originating at Ugly Duckling Car Sales on East Fremont Street, the sign greeted motorists and passersby, becoming a well-known landmark. The roadside pylon dates back to the 1990s and conjures nostalgia for many Las Vegas locals. The Ugly Duckling has been present at the Boneyard since the Neon Museum’s grand opening in October 2012 and is now located close to the entrance of the boneyard next to the La Concha motel sign.

FAST FACTS:

  • The restoration took approximately 136-man hours to complete.
  • The total amount of neon replaced encompassed four 50-pound cases totaling approximately 800 linear feet of glass ordered for replacement.
