LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Neon Museum in Las Vegas says it hit its projections almost perfectly by drawing about 60,000 visitors during its first full year in operation.

Museum board chairman Bill Marion told the Las Vegas City Council Wednesday that the tourist attraction has been running in the black since its official opening in October 2012.

The outdoor museum features more than 150 giant signs retired from casinos throughout Las Vegas. Some are fully restored and light up on their own, while most are lit by external spotlights.

The museum offers guided tours and special programs. It also hosts events, including parties and weddings.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ilULCu ) the city is the land owner and the initial creator of the museum, which is now an independent entity with nonprofit status.
