It looks like a bank converted into a hardware store, but while it does sell items, it is an antique store that specializes in lighting. You have to see this place to believe it.

This museum is incredible, and I don't think many people know about it. Went in here for some lighting products and decided to take a spin around the museum and was blown away by it. What a treasure, and the variety of Art Deco lighting is nothing short of amazing!

An interesting collection of new and old with recreations of antique hardware as well as antiques for sale. Upstairs there is a fascinating museum of art deco light fixtures which we love. It was a treat to see this beautiful collection.

This place is nothing short of spectacular if you love glass and Art Deco. The museum on the second floor of this striking building is a collection of Art Deco chandeliers, wall sconces, and table lamps, some extremely rare, but all stunning. There are over 400 fixtures on display dating from 1928 - 1928. In addition to the museum, the... More

An impressive collection of Art Deco lights and fixtures jammed together in a large, lofty building. But the stuff on the main floor didn't really feel all that unique or collection-worthy - lots of reproduction items and not all of them lights. It seemed just like a light store, and one without a very coherent display, too Almost didn't go... More

This is a great example of art deco lighting with lots of historical information to support the beautiful collection. The building also has retail lighting, rug and furniture sales. It is worth the trip to visit.

Very interesting artifacts on the 2nd floor. This is where the true museum pieces are. First floor is mostly reproductions with a few originals here and there. A little disappointing to see so much merchandise "made in China"
