Fluorescent Art Museum - Review
It is a fact that, there isn’t any dearth of museums in the city of Amsterdam, but despite that, the city and its museums will never stop surprising you. This museum here is one such example. In the district Jordaan section of the city, between two canals and in a side street is situated this museum which can surprise you at the same time impress you immensely. The museum was founded by an American artist Nick Padalino and named it after one of the famous albums by Jimmy Hendrix. It is the very first museum in the world in this category and that is why, it is all the more intriguing. If you love something different, something amazing, then you are bound to love it.

Fluorescent Art Museum, Amsterdam Reviews
Fascination exhibition of all things fluorescent from historical art, to minerals and crystals. If you are looking for a psychedelic quirky experience then you’ve found the right place. The owner is extremely knowledgeable and passionate on the subject. A charming hippie dude whose enthusiasm for fluorescent is infectious. If you are after some corporate slick multi media museum look else where, this is real Amsterdam alternative vibes.
Don't Give Up If You Don't Get In the First Time, It's Well Worth the Effort Like some of the "one-star" reviewers, we experienced the abrupt last-minute cancellation of a reservation, which was both frustrating and disappointing, but we went ahead and booked a tour the next day, and it was well worth it. I think the challenge is that the place is called a "Museum" and people expect it to be like, well, a "museum" - you know, with staff, a lobby, and exhibit halls, a gift shop and over-priced food. That's not what this place is, at all. This tiny treasure is in just two rooms (living room and basement) of just another home on the street. It's not like they have a staff or anything like that, it's just two people and if something unexpected comes up, they may have to cancel the tour abruptly. It can be frustrating, but give them a second chance if you can. The exhibit itself is an incredible decades-long labor of love, perhaps even driven with some benign fanaticism, all coupled with a depth of knowledge about the science and art of fluorescing materials that may very well be unmatched by anyone on the planet. There is so much knowledge shared, and so many things to see stuffed into the tiny space. If you simply stop, put your phone down and listen to what the man is saying, and look at all of what they have put together in that tiny space, you'll learn so many new things. Go slowly - look on the walls - learn why rocks from New Jersey and Sweden share the same fluorescent properties, see the strange photo-reactive minerals, see things that glow in the dark and while you're there, take a few minutes to learn about the implications of creating and/or eating glow-in-the-dark animals. Explore the many tiny touches of the glowing cave-mountain thing they built. Look in all of the various displays. This was definitely one my favorite stops in Amsterdam, and my whole family enjoyed the place as well. Will definitely come back if my travels take me back to Amsterdam.
one-room museum with a mandatory 45min tour. definitely an interesting and different experience in comparison to the more traditional museums in amsterdam. owner has a lot of stories to tell and seems to know his stuff well. remember to reserve your spots online! space feels a little crammed (almost claustrophobic), but worth visiting for the experience!
Made reservations to go like it tells you to. I showed up with six others who also reserved and nobody showed up. Was there from 2:45-3:30. Called and emailed but never got a response. In total 16 people were waiting outside but nobody showed up and we all left. Don’t waste your time.
Small museum and a cozy visit. Went with 4 others and 3 more on the tour. Great chatting with the owners, super cool people who are open to telling you more about the art if you ask. Totally worth a visit just to talk to them.
