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.

Took my Honeybee to see my old friend Nick at the "Ladyland"; the spirit of Albert Hoffman soars and spins throughout this marvelous space. Trippy and vibrantly colored at the threshold; this wonder quickly gets to the physics of light and fluorescence. The history of...More

Owner did not show after we booked appointments at 4 PM on a Friday to see the place. I wouldn't recommend going here unless you're certain someone shows up to let you in

Went here with two friends and loved it! A very unique experience and found a new interest in the art of UV lights. Also very nice to see an owner who was so passionate and knowledgable of his museum. Would definitely recommend!

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.

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.
