After shutting down its downtown L.A. location in 2011, the Museum of Neon Art is glowing again at a brand new location in Glendale. The museum officially opened last night, and included musical performances and a bevy of neon. One exhibit, called It's About Time, features a collection of neon clocks, while Illuminations features neon artwork from over two dozen artists.

Visitors can also check out the museum's iconic neon diver fixed to the building and find the Clayton's Plumbing sign in the paseo—that one illustrates a dripping faucet.

MONA also offers their Neon Cruise, where passengers will be taken on a guided tour to explore and learn about the best neon signs around town. Check their website for more details and tour times.

MONA is located at 216 S. Brand Blvd. in Glendale, 213-489-9918
