Why locals love it

While the older generation thinks about neon signs with nostalgy, the main advertising method of the cold war era arises enourmous interest among the youth as well. It's great that the activists of the Neon Museum save, conserve and restore these unique neon signs. They are all a small piece of art, created by the best graphic designers of the era.

Why you should visit it

Take the time machine back to the sixties and seventies of Poland. The Neon Museum's great collection helps you to imagine how streets of the main cities looked like, all lit up with colorful and playful neon signs. Some of the signs became iconic landmarks on their own, advertising legendary restaurants or bars of the era.

Special tip

Visit the museum shop for neon related souvenirs and publications. The books of neon activist Ilona Karwinska are also available abroad.

An incredible place where the passionate owners are trying to save (successfully) a piece of Polish culture. Definitely worthy to see.
