While listening to NPR or KPCC I heard about a neon museum over in Glendale (CA). I vaguely remember going to a neon museum with my friend Bob about twenty years ago but that museum was in downtown Los Angeles.
Here’s the Glendale museum. It’s a new building across the street from the Americana on Brand. (The Americana in an outdoor mall.) They often film the celebrity related show EXTRA at the Americana. Note: There is an $8 admission fee to MONA if you aren’t a Glendale resident.
When you walk into the museum there is a wall of neon clocks.
This big one, on an opposite wall, is five feet across. That’s what the lady at the counter said.
They sell neon clocks too. This table model had a price tag of $2,000!
On the way to the exhibit was an on-site repair shop.
This was the exhibit being held when I went.
The cat is great. I can’t tell if that’s a bathtub or outdoor grill under the fish.
This was beautiful.
It was called Just another day in pair a dice. (huh?)
This face was odd.
Not quite sure what this was supposed to be.
These I’m able to relate to. It’s a camera and a race horse with a jockey.
They look great together.
Called the Museum of Sex. This item was near the end of the exhibit. If a patron cranked the wheel on the right the steel rod (that’s covering the letters “S” and “E”) moved toward the two metal orbs.
The windmills’ arms twirled too.
Outside of the windmill the frog was my favorite item.
In an adjacent park was this plumbing sign.
The sign at night.
