Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art, Amsterdam

#33 of 74 in Museums in Amsterdam
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Nearby is the House of Anne Frank and the westermarkt, so you can take advantage of a day to see it all and to be in the area. I think it is one of those places that you go thinking that you've thrown the money or you're hallucinating as for example in my case. I went with two companions that they were reminding me the $ 5 the rest of the trip, but if he should return to Amsterdam probably would go again to this place, since I am a lover of all this type of psychedelic art and they excite me fluorescent things. Forget everything you know about other museums or galleries to enter here, because it has nothing to do with any place where you have been before. I recommend the visit to anyone who enjoy different things and unconventional art, because if you expect an amusement park or a gallery with works by the Renaissance probably think that it was a waste of time and money.

  • Cool place but signs should be posted about how small the basement is. Not for those with claustrophobia.
  • Amazing experience. You will be drawn into his world of fluorescent wonder.
  • Awesome hidden museum. The guy is really wise and will explain every treasure he collected, and how he discovered them. Small but intense.
  • Current tour schedule can't be found on the website. Here it is: tour starts every 45 minutes over the hour. Would be nice if this is communicated.
  • Terrific place to know more about fluorescent technique! Jangan sadar ya..
