Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art, Amsterdam
(3.6/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Explore a different kind of art at Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art, the world's first fluorescent art museum, created by American artist Nick Padalino. Descend into a cellar and discover the atmosphere aglow in 1970s style, named after a Jimmy Hendrix album. The one-room, cave-like exhibit features multicolor diplays of fluorescent objects. In spite of its small size, the trippy experience tends to be memorable. The museum also features a large collection of rocks and other elements that naturally react to ultraviolet light. Look for the glass case full of gray stones that explode with flecks of electric color once under the black light.

  • Had a blast here. Small and intimate museum, full of unusual fluorescent artefacts and artwork. The owners are a delight, full of character and interesting stories. 
  • Was the attraction that more I longed in this living room. Timetables has fairly limited and when we showed up in the middle of the opening times we only found a locked door.

  • Loved it - spent 2 hours there chatting with the owner. His passion and love for fluorescents really shined(pun intended)
  • A must-see if you are in to quirky, atypical musea! The museum is located in the basement of a very cool art shop. Half of it is a walk-in artpiece which is really cool. The museum is very tiny but the guy running it, who is super chill, gave us a very extensive tour with information on everything he had on display. He had a bunch of minerals which he got from all over the world and told us many interesting facts about all kinds of fluorescent things. A true expert! So you definitely get your money's worth and can even buy some cool fluorescent artwork afterwards. A pitty that the shop is so small though, it took a while before I could get out because it was so crowded!
  • Amazing. We were blown away. Exciting original art form that was awesome to explore. It's a tiny, tiny venue we spent a whole hour there and we were fascinated.
  • Small and quirky place bur very cool. Luminescent displays, art and grotto which glow fantastic colours under black light. Recommended and only five euro
  • One of the most interesting museums I´ve ever been to. For good price you get great tour about fluorescent light. And no, it s not boring. I guarantee it. One star down for really small premises.
