Outdoor museum with signs attached to an old brick building that is now being used by Telus. Open 24 hours; no fees. Plaques detailing the former location of each sign are installed below each. Even though I am not too familiar with Edmonton it was...More

Overall, I think these signs give off some great light. If you are considering coming all the way from the Newfoundland to Edmonton just to see these lights, please consider seeing other Edmonton sites as well. Thanks. - J

A walk to this area is best done at night time to appreciate the neon signs which once adorned many Edmonton shops. If you look close enough you will find several History telling story plaques each telling you how the neon signs came to be...More

We were looking forward to seeing this but we were totally disappointed to find that the museum is only an outdoor section of wall with the signs on it. I would say this is closer to a price of public art and not a museum....More

This is such a cool little block at night. Love the old neon signs from back in the day. Great idea to showcase them like this

Unorthodox "museum" - it's all located on the outside of buildings along a block in downtown Edmonton, near Rogers Place. It only takes 10 - 15 minutes, even if you take the time to read the signs that explain each sign's history. Of course, it's...More

Long-time Edmontonians will appreciate seeing old familiars like the Mike's newsstand neon sign (long a hallmark of Jasper Avenue) and others. Informative plaques tell the story; spend a half-hour or hour going back in time. Well worth it!
