The world's first art amusement park.

In the summer of 1987, a fantastical fairground unlike any ever witnessed landed in Hamburg, Germany. Artist and curator André Heller invited over thirty renowned visionaries—including Salvador Dalí, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Sonia Delaunay—to design rides, games, and attractions into one extravaganza for all to enjoy. 

Some called it a “fairground of sensations.” Others dubbed it “the museum of the future.” He named it Luna Luna.

Today, Luna Luna lives on—uniting amusement with the avant-garde to inspire the imagination in everyone.

Our next chapter begins with Luna Luna: Forgotten Fantasy—a spectacular showcase of the 1987 park—on view in Los Angeles.

Behind the scenes, we remain hard at work crafting new experiences that marry art and play while pursuing the long-term goal of building the next iteration of Luna Luna: an art amusement park with contemporary artists.

Los Angeles, CA
Now open! Now open!

Thirty-six years ago, Luna Luna landed in Hamburg, Germany: the world’s first art amusement park with rides, games, and attractions by visionaries like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and David Hockney. By a twist of fate, the park’s treasures were soon sealed in 44 shipping containers and forgotten in Texas—until now.
