Verrrry cool museum!!! - Check it out.
Just 15-20% of the museum's neon collection is on display at any one time. Won't take long to see it all at this temporary location, but it sure is beautiful stuff.
I checked it out during the Artwalk and the majority of the MONA was blocked off for what looked like a private party. It's small to begin with, so didn't see too many pieces.
The museum is very cool, but also very small so it won't take you more than 30 minutes to get through. Best to make a day of it and plan several downtown stops along with the MONA.
