Take personal portraits with your own photographer in a shared space for 1 hour at the perfect time of day, the golden hour. Your photographer may bring all of their chosen equipment including tripods, multiple cameras, extra lenses, lights, props, etc.

The number of tickets is limited so you'll have plenty of space to get the perfect shot. 

Portrait Hours are pre-scheduled and take place in the North Gallery (click here for images,) at golden hour (the hour before sunset). 

The Neon Museum does not provide a photographer so you’ll need to provide your own.  

This is a shared space with up to 15 guests total, also taking photos. 

All members of your party, including the photographer, assistants and other guests, must have a Portrait Hour ticket to enter. 

Please note, you will NOT have access to the Main Neon Boneyard (where the signs are lit) during this Portrait Hour and the North Gallery does not have any restored signs so none of the signs light up.

Please book a private photo if these scheduled Portrait Hour dates don’t work with your schedule, if you prefer to have the space all to yourself, if you will be using the images commercially, or if you prefer to have your shoot in the Main Neon Boneyard

To have a wedding ceremony or bring an officiant please book through our Events Department. This is not permitted during a Portrait Hour.
