'Lost Vegas: Tim Burton' Exhibit Gets Online Neon Museum Send-Off
Fans of Tim Burton will have one last chance to enjoy the filmmaker’s exhibition at the Neon Museum — even though it’s closed because of the coronavirus.
Because of its popularity, the exhibition had been extended through mid-April, but the museum is closed amid the pandemic. The exhibition features sculptures and digital creations showcasing the filmmaker’s links to Las Vegas.
Museum President and CEO Rob McCoy said the museum's strong presence on social media, including more than 1 million Facebook followers, offered a ready-built audience.
"We can do virtual tours, we can give educational talks, and we can draw people into our museum through our online platform," he said.
McCoy, a longtime Las Vegas business and nonprofit executive, said he expects the museum to focus more on the locals market when it reopens.
