The mission of MONA or Museum of Neon Art is to encourage learning in all, as well as curiosity by offering Los Angeles, California residents and visitors collections, preserved art, and interpretations of that art. All the art is made with neon properties, adding to the concept of the museum. Contemporary pieces will not be found here, unless they use neon to make the display.
The museum is open Thursday through Saturday 12pm to 6pm, Sunday 12pm to 5pm, and it is closed Monday through Wednesday. Admission into the museum is $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and $3 for children 12 and under. Anyone under 5 is free. MONA offers a variety of displayed items, including the history of neon. Visitors will learn how it all began, why it became highly popular, and what it is mostly thought of now.
They also have a Classic Neon Cruise that runs from June through November. The cruises are $45 for members and $55 for non members. The cruises take visitors around Los Angeles in the bay and harbor. There is also a holiday cruise to view the Neon Lights, which is held in December.
