Only small but lots to look at. The guy is passionate and knowledgeable and it is actually really interesting. I was amazed by the natural rocks that glow neon colours under certain light. Blew me away! Well worth a visit.

This is basically just a room with a big neon art structure thing in it and a bunch of rocks that glow under UV light and some art work made with it. However, the guy that runs the place knows loads about them and does a pretty interesting talk. It's only 4 or 5 euros and you're in there for... More

Electric Ladyland is such a gem. I absolutely loved it and learnt so much. It's a really unique museum which feels special and overall great fun. Lots of colour and different objects plus the interactive art! My favourite part was the rock cabinet which was magical.

I'll start with the only downside of this museum: It's small! Only one room. Yet it is packed with beautifull and interesting stuff. Fluorescent artwork, minerals, stones, posters, everyday stuff that has a secret UV-reactive feature, scientific information and some psychedelic seventies rockmusic to create a comfortable atmosphere. The owner, a friendly hippie dude, knows his stuff! You can ask... More

its a small room around 6 metres square accessed by a very steep wooden staircase which is almost a ladder. The basement is dotted with display cases and a big art instillation which at first glance are not what you would call startling.But in the hands of the owner who acts as your guide you are given a presentation which...

Amsterdam is the perfect home for this museum. You walk through the door straight back into the 1960's of hippies and flower power. The guy who runs this has a passion for the subject and is a great guide. I agree with all previous reviews and would recommend it.

We were slightly sceptical about going but loved it - nick really knew what he was talking about and turns the small museum into something exciting as he shows you around using the different UV lights - loved it. It's worth going for the photos alone!

Visiting this museum was one of the strangest experiences I've ever had. It's basically just a room in a house down a normal road in Amsterdam. For only €5, you get to enter the basement (down a set of very steep stairs) for a guided "tour" containing a large model painted in fluorescent paint made by the owner and a... More

But nothing amazing. Doesn't open when it says it should. The owner is knowledgeable but completely unorganized. Noisy Indian music + mumbling owner who doesn't care to see if you understand what he's going on about doesn't really give the best experience. Could have been a much better experience if a bit more effort was put into it.

Electric Ladyland is a room rather than a museum as such, but it did not really need to be any bigger as there are a fairly small amount of exhibits. The owner of the museum is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject of fluorescent light art and gives visitors a detailed talk, which was really interesting even though I knew nothing... More
