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

You were sent a cancellation email 4 full hours before your appointment, so don't get dramatic!

Everything about this experience was a waste of time. The link to make reservations is basically hidden in pages and pages of information on their website. We finally figured that out, and arrived for our appointment only to find a stiflingly hot tiny basement with...More

Went here with two friends and loved it! A very unique experience and found a new interest in the art of UV lights. Also very nice to see an owner who was so passionate and knowledgable of his museum. Would definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed it. Got some good pictures. It's in a basement. But was there about 1 1/2 hrs. They guy was very knowledgeable and willing to talk if you're willing to listen. Loved it. Worth the few euros.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow

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.
