This is not your usual tourist trap. Electric Ladyland is a genuinely unique experience, and clearly a labour of love for the owners who've been running the place since they opened in 1987. Nick is very passionate about his work and the history behind florescent...More

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.
