Over the weekend Patrick and I spent a day shopping in Burbank (I came home with quite a few goodies which will show up sooner or later on the blog, I’m sure) followed by a visit to the Museum of Neon Art. I would likely say that signage from the mid-20th century is my favorite art. Neon is simply spellbinding to me.
MONA is quite small when compared to most museums, and is a nice addition to a day spent shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. It honestly took us around 45 minute or so to walk about the museum and read the details about the signs and those of the current photography exhibit, with showcased Instagram users. But it’s totally worth a visit. These signs are both works of art and incredible pieces of Americana.
Become bewitched by neon at the Museum of Neon Art at 216 S Brand Boulevard in Glendale. Get more details, including events and up to date ticket prices by visiting their website.
In need of more neon and in or plan to visit Las Vegas? I also recommend the Neon Museum! You can check out our visit there here.
2022 Update: I’ve returned to MONA many times, and it really has become one of my favorite museums in the greater Los Angeles area. MONA also offers amazing Neon Cruises, which I’ve taken a handful of times, and highly recommend. You can get an idea of what you see on the Neon Cruise my checking out my posts here.
