Museum will light the way

SHANGHAI plans to build a neon light museum to keep alive the nights of old Shanghai.

In recent years LED lights have replaced most neon lights around the city. The museum will exhibit different styles of neon lights from various periods to show how Shanghai streets have changed since the lights were first used in 1921.

Shanghai's neon light market has shrunk 90 percent since 2006 as many neon light manufacturers closed or began producing LED lights.

The museum will be part of an exhibition hall being set up by the Shanghai Advertising Association for logo light manufacturers.

The association will help police and the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau inspect broken light boxes and illegal store signs to prevent safety hazards.
