To provide new pathways for students to engage with STEAM education and increase access to The Neon Museum’s educational content and collection, The Neon Museum is developing its 盒子里的博物馆 (MIAB) outreach program, 特别针对中学生. MIAB deals with subjects ranging from museum studies to Black History in Las Vegas to Architecture and Design that fulfill Nevada Academic Content Standards (NVACS). Each box contains hands-on activities and educational objects for students to engage in, while educators have associated lesson plans and learning objectives. The expected reach of MIAB in its inaugural year is 4,000名学生, and specifically includes Title I and rural schools in Clark County School District. Boxes are delivered and picked up from schools for free through funding from the program’s sponsors, Clark County and MGM Resorts International.

由装配工作室的Jaclyn Roth领导, this walking tour will guide visitors through the 霓虹灯墓地, providing architecturally specific insights into the properties of yesterday and today and the architects and 设计ers who created them. 根植于那本影响深远的书, 向拉斯维加斯学习, the tour will provide a different perspective on The Neon Museum’s collection.
The 霓虹灯墓地 serving as our backdrop, this tour will explore the properties featured in iconic films, from the all-time greats and cult classics to lesser-known independent films in which Las Vegas has played a role. We’ll ask: Is Las Vegas a character unto itself in a movie? Join us as The Neon Museum’s collection allows us to rekindle your relationship with films you know and love, the movie you’re embarrassed to admit you love and discover a few hidden gems you’ll want to review for your collection.
