Neon Museum Toronto pop-up is an introduction to a permanent museum that is under development in Downtown Toronto.
Spearheaded by the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area (BIA) the Neon Museum Toronto is planned as a multi-site cultural attraction that will present the most exciting and captivating neon and other outdoor, as well as indoor signs that once adorned some of Toronto’s most iconic retail establishments, restaurants and bars, clubs, hotels and live music venues from the past 100 years.
The 10,000 square foot, Downtown Toronto Museum will serve as a visitor centre and main orientation hub of Museum activities which will direct visitors to the various neon gallery exhibits. The centre will also include event, programming and administration spaces.
In addition to the indoor exhibit space, the Museum is also conceived to be a series of neon galleries located in pedestrian laneways throughout the Toronto downtown core (ideally near the Hub). These laneways; galleries provide the ideal and authentic backdrops for the signs as these signs would have been viewed originally outdoors.
