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.

One of the friends I was traveling with found this gem on Instagram and we just had to go. The owner knows a lot about his flourescent work and is very well traveled. When talking with us he was not only passionate about his work but also about the education of the material. Who knew people dreamed of going to... More

We waited until the opening time for someone to let us in but no one came :-( Very disappointed as this looked quite fun!

The owner of the museum is and old and very energetic hippy. He filled the basement of his house with a large collection of fluorescent stones and art. The collection on itself is certainly worth a visit, but what made the visit really worth remembering is the owner himself and the enormous passion he has for the topic

The owner's extensive knowledge on the subject makes this worth a visit if you're in the area and half about 40 minutes to spare. For 5 euros, you'll learn some about fluorescent colours, art, science, and history. Would probably be even better to visit after a visit to a coffeeshop. Bring a camera for some trippy pictures!

A small exhibit in the basement, the highlight is the owner and his passion and knowledge. You need to be up for something different, quirky, not touristy and flashy.

What you can't fault is the couples passion for all things Fluorescent !!! However it is a bit a bit underwhelming and relies on the owners stories to have any credibility. Would I make a huge detour,no but as something completely unique then worth a visit.

This place is lovely. There's loads of information about flourescent art, the history of the art and examples of natural sources of UV. The man who runs it is a mine of inofrmation, and truly lovely. He lets guests take picture (as long as you don't use flash!) and will answer all questions you have. He really makes the place... More

We were met by a sign that said: "you have to wait but you can't wait here". And no info of how long you had to wait.. After waiting on a street nearby for 15min we decided to leave.

At first glance the museum downstairs looks small and a little underwhelming but when Nick turns off the lights and starts the tour the place is transformed into the Electric Ladyland it's billed as. Nick is passionate, interesting and knowledgeable about all things fluorescent, and as well as being entertained you learn about a hidden world that's right in front... More

Thank you for your review, I'm glad some of the visitors appreciate Art. I am also glad you got into the museum when you did. Because of the amount of visitors coming to the museum, I will be CLOSED the Rest of JULY, 2016 for Resturation. More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
