The Neon Muzeum in Warsaw

The Neon Muzeum is dedicated to the documentation and the preservation of Cold War era neon signs.

Since 2005, the Neon Muzeum has been passionately engaged in the enormous task of researching and restoring the last surviving remnants of the ‘great neonisation’ campaign across the former Eastern Bloc. All efforts have been credited with ushering in a new neon renaissance throughout Poland; a movement that culminated in the opening of the first and only museum of its kind in Europe.

The permanent collection contains hundreds of dazzling neon signs and other electro-graphic artefacts; many of which were designed by the great artists of the age – who were responsible for the world-famous Polish Poster School.

I invite you to visit the Neon Muzeum – one of the most popular museums in Warsaw – and appreciate these rare and fascinating cold war neon signs! When you visit the museum you will be struck by the sheer inventiveness and unique characteristics of a hitherto unknown art form – which was born from revolution, served as state propaganda, and flourished during Poland’s post-war period.
