Museum of Fluorescent Art in Amsterdam

Electric LadyLand EntranceIn one of the side streets between two canals of the lively old district Jordaan, below an art gallery in the style of 1970-ties, in a dark space of the cellar of one of the townhouses thousands of fluorescent stones shine. An obsession of one man – American artist Nick Padalino created here a small museum: named after the music album by Jimmy Hendrix from 1968 - Electric Ladyland or more formally - The Fluorescent Art Museum which is proud to be the first museum of its kind in the world, totally devoted to the fascination with fluorescence, moreover - making an art of it.

To visit it, you have like in older times in all museums of Eastern Europe, to put soft slippers on your shoes, and walk down the stairs into the artistic cave-like space. Because, it all happens in one, not very big cellar: a microcosmic, dark collection of fluorescent objects exhibited in a multicolored cave, with artificially created spaces, full of vibrant, fluorescent colors.

Electric LadyLand GalleryVisiting the Electric Ladyland

To visit Electric Ladyland is like to travel into the aura of the Flower Power movement, the world of the psychedelic art and music of the 1970-ties. Take you iPod with you and just enjoy it listening to the music you like. The exhibit may look amateurish, but it works - Electric Ladyland is fantastic and genuinely interesting. We recommend it not only for the Flower Power generation. If you are interested in minerals or specifically in fluorescence – do not miss it.
