3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Particular museum in small basement with countless neon and blacklight objects. There is even a mini landscape. The explanation of the guide is particularly good and fun.

  • Electric Ladyland js a little eccentric museum dedicated to fluorescent stones and art. The shop is on the ground floor and the museum is in the basement so beware because you easily bump your head. The museum is managed by a very passionate hippie that very is passionate about all the techniques and objects.

  • We waited until the opening time for someone to let us in but no one came :-( Very disappointed as this looked quite fun! 
  • The small size of the place is more than made up with the passion and devotion of the collector showing off his stash of rare fluorescent minerals and artwork. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Fun place to be at. The art is cool and the artist is a chit chat kind of guy. It's a great experience for the price, only 5 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.
  • Very small museum, only one room in a basement. The owners are extremely friendly and cool, so that's a big plus. They were very nice to talk to. This is a very English-friendly experience.
  • What a great place. It was amazing and I loved it. I can tell it won't be to everyone's taste but to talk to someone who loves what they do so much always fills me with joy. On Nicks advice I'm going to India next week and really hope to find some glowing rocks in Varanasi as Nick has before me. Go and maybe get a little high first
