Me and my wife did this tour in March 2018. This museum opened my eyes to another world of Fluorescence. Fluorescence is pretty much a living organism. It takes energy, consumes it, produces the brightest colors you would ever see. The vibes in this place...More

This is such a fascinating and quirky place to visit. Art and science all mixed into one and guided by the very knowledgeable and passionate owner/artist. The booking system makes sense considering the sort of venue it is, and there were around 15/20 of us...More

Less a museum than a trippy coagulation of flourescent lights of all kinds, it is definitely one of the places you want to see when in Amsterdam.

working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

I didn't make an appointment. But they did say during busy time, it's best to make an appointment. Try electric-lady-land. Put com at the end.
