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.

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

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two

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.
