Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art, Amsterdam

3.6
#33 of 74 in Museums in Amsterdam
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.

    Cool place but signs should be posted about how small the basement is. Not for those with claustrophobia.

    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.
