“Great and unique few hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Me and some friends spent a while trying to find this place, but after asking for directions stumbled upon it. I was dubious when we first went in thinking it wasn't going to be great. You enter into a shop full of florescent art and then pay 5 euros to go down some really steep steps to the museum (wouldn't recommend this place to anyone that has difficulty with stairs). The guy who owns the shop and museum really makes this place. The museum is just one room with his art and his natural florescent collections in but the way he talks about them and shows them under different lights is amazing.

I loved seeing the secret images on passports/driving lisence etc. and seeing the shells and rocks give off amazing colours! I would definitely recommend if you're looking for something different to do in Amsterdam.

“Cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I love it and when you go there it like you are at beautiful wonderland. Owner is friendly and fun. Lots of interesting rock and items there that you need to learn. Am glad I went there and great experience for me and my Aunty. It's not far from Tram stops. I will recommend to anyone. :)

“I love the guy's enthusiasm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

The hippy guy who owns this place loves luminous rocks and has devoted himself to them, traveling the world to collect them so he can show them to you. His enthusiasm for his hobby is humbling, and it's great to be invited into his world for 45 minutes while he shows you around.

“Trippy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is a trippy little off-the-beaten-path adventure. Electric Ladyland is a tiny museum of flourescent art, occupying the room below the ground floor art gallery. The proprietor gives tours, pointing out and explaining each item in the museum, all of which he collected or made, himself. The tour takes about 45 minutes. The location is good, too; beautiful neighborhood and quaint shops are nearby. Beware - you must be able to climb down a ladder into the museum.

Hello,
Thanks for the nice review, but there IS NOT A LADDER to walk down to enter the Museum, just a steep stairway.
Thanks

“Off the chart Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

New it was going to be different - and it was. Great experience and will remember this tour forever as the most unique - a passion for all things 'fluorescent' - over a span of years. Only in Amsterdam would you find this kind of quirky and fascinating knowledge in the world of glowing minerals . The host was eclectic and charming and certainly knew his stuff. We loved it!
