Edmonton, Alberta, is the largest city this far north in Canada, and the nights are very long and dark in the wintertime. As such, locals love their lights at night, and colorful neon signs were a popular way to mark the storefronts throughout town.

The outdoor Neon Sign Museum was created as a collection of 20 vintage neon signs that have historic significance to the town. These old signs show classic neon designs that once represented the businesses of Edmonton, from bakeries to railways to theaters. They were rediscovered and restored, and opened in the historic 104th Street warehouse area downtown as the first neon sign museum in Canada.

Know Before You Go

The museum is free and best seen at dusk or at night. It is located very close to the Rogers Place arena.
