If you were excited to go visit the Neon Museum this year and check out all the cool Tim Burton stuff then odds are when coronavirus hit you were a little more than let down. With everyone having to stay at home and businesses being shut down that are non essential, museums and zoos have had to come up with alternative ways to keep people interested. And thanks to the Neon Museum we will still be able to see the exhibit, and even better we can do it while staying safe at home. The Neon Museum will be offering a Facebook Live Tour called Lost Vegas: Tim Burton @The Neon Museum presented by The Engelstad Foundation on April 10, at 1 p.m. PDT.
According to the description on their Facebook,
Join us for our first-ever virtual guided tour live on Facebook where we’ll focus on the “Lost Vegas: Tim Burton @ The Neon Museum” artwork that is integrated with the collection of historic Las Vegas signs in the Neon Boneyard.
From The Neon Museum’s CEO Rob McCoy: “The exhibition was scheduled to continue through Sunday, April 12, but with the Museum’s temporary closure due to COVID-19, we know thousands of art lovers will miss their chance to see Burton’s outstanding exhibition. This live, virtual tour will take place especially for them — and will be enjoyable for anyone who appreciates Burton’s work and iconic Las Vegas sign design.”
It’s a very sweet thing for the museum to do because they are right, a lot of Burton fans really wanted to go see this in person. While they will probably have another exhibit like this in the future that people can go to it will be a good break from reality to be able to watch it on Facebook Live tomorrow.
