Top destination around Neon Museum Boneyard - Las Vegas

Bellagio Fountains
Bellagio Fountains are, as many people say, the best and absolutely free attraction of Las Vegas. The fountains can make a huge impression on visitors who see them for the first time. From 15:00 to 24:00, Monday to Friday, huge jets of water rise up to 152m in height, turning this into a real performance. The magnificent spectacle is accompanied by music, and jet fountains “move” in unison with it. On weekends, the show starts on 12:00 and continues until 24:00.
Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art features a remarkable, though not very well-known collection of sculptures and paintings of the late XIX and the XX centuries. This is the place where visitors will be able to see paintings by Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and other European masters. The gallery is equipped with audio guides that provide information on the collection and the works of art exhibited there.

Volcano.
The eruption of the volcano is another very popular and very entertaining Vegas attraction. In front of the Mirage Hotel you will find a real crater that is quite calm during the daytime, but that starts to boil and bubble after dark. After this the volcano starts spewing streams of fire and lava every 15 minutes. The performance is supported by sounds of a real volcano eruption. The show looks very natural and very impressive.
