The Neon Museum
The Neon Museum in Las Vegas was a great place to visit but I think they go way overboard with all their rules against photography. I’ve never seen any place taking things as far as they do.
They did not allow backpacks, large purses or camera bags. No tripods, selfie sticks or lighting equipment is permitted either. Okay, I can understand, and accept, those rules but it doesn't stop there. If you want to use a camera, you are allowed to bring one lens only. Also, no matter what camera you use, even if it's a cell phone, no audio or video is permitted under any circumstances, you are limited to still photos only.
It still doesn't end there. If they think your camera looks "too professional” or if it looks like you are doing a photo shoot, they reserve the right to immediately eject you from the museum, with no refunds offered. What exactly does a photo shoot look like and how do they make that determination? What makes a camera "too professional looking"? These are vague judgement calls based on the whim of whoever is running the tour.
All of this ridiculousness almost made me decide not to even come here. I'm glad that I did though because it was a very interesting place. I just don't understand why they are so unfriendly to photographers though.
