Lumi Neon Museum Kansas City

Two local men hope to create a neon museum.

Veteran Ad Men Plan Bright Future For Kansas City's Old Neon Signs

If they create this museum, I hope they can figure out how to power it using solar panels. Big neon signs can use a lot of electricity.

Thanks for posting Fang.

I love this idea, and hope it comes to fruition with a wide variety of signs in an interesting, central-ish location (maybe Electric Park in the East Bottoms?).

I've always wanted to visit The Neon Museum in Las Vegas (https://www.neonmuseum.org/), which does both self-guided and hour-long guided tours that describe city and casino history.

If Lumi becomes a reality and can create anything resembling to a similar experience, it would be a big culture win for KC.
