“After almost two years of love and light, we’re sad to announce that the Neon Museum of Philadelphia is closing its doors,” reads a portion of a statement from the museum’s founder Len Davidson.

“As we near the end of our run, we celebrate the opportunity we’ve had to display our collection of history and art with visitors from Philadelphia and beyond. It has been a pleasure to share our love of neon and appreciation for Philly culture in this unique community space,” Davidson states.

“We’re grateful for your support and for our partnership with NextFab and all of our neighbors. Beyond its residence at 1800 North American St., we would love the museum to continue elsewhere in some form,” he adds. “We’re seeking a new home for the collection that allows it to stay unified, local, and publicly accessible. Ideally, partnership with a local institution could make this dream possible.”

Up until the museum’s final day on Dec. 11, it will maintain regular hours: Fridays 1-6 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays 12-5 p.m., (closed Nov. 25).
