The Museum of Neon Art (MONA; Pomona, CA) has announced that it will invite the public into their “PoMONA Warehouse” on July 9, 3-7 p.m., for only the third time in the museum’s 42 years of operation, according to a release from MONA. Guests will experience 20-minute guided tours of the collection, neon demonstrations, and receive a free driving map of Pomona Neon with tips for other cultural organizations to visit during their day in Pomona.

Guided tours of the warehouse and brewery will be first come, first served and limited to 20 people at a time. Visitors will need to sign a waiver to enter the warehouse. The cost is $15 for MONA members and $30 for general admission.

As part of their tour, guests will be able to visit Neon Bear Brewery. The craft brewer next door to the MONA warehouse showcases neon signs and artworks from MONA’s collection as well as a delicious range of brews. Neon Bear Brewery will donate a portion of sales for the night towards restoration of MONA’s neon.

The warehouse holds new acquisitions, including the 12-ft.-tall Knotts Berry Farm “K,” the Brown Derby, Flynn’s, Western Motel and many more.

“It is a rare occasion to open our warehouse to the public, because it is often filled to the brim with new acquisitions and ongoing projects. Visitors will see a range of beautifully restored signs, objects, and artworks as well as those awaiting restoration. When I first visited the warehouse I was filled with wonder, it’s very fun to relive this with visitors,” MONA Executive Director Corrie Siegel is quoted in the release.
