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

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!

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

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.
