Polish cold war neons
Muzeum Neonu (Neon Museum)13
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.
Visit the museum shop for neon related souvenirs and publications. The books of neon activist Ilona Karwinska are also available abroad.
