Bought a ticket to the Lumina Domestica as part of the 3 museums deal along with the frite and chocolate museums. It's located within the choco-story museum and is surprisingly large with a huge collection of lamps throughout history and the story of the domestic...More

Although less popular than the neighbouring chocolate museum, this was a really interesting find. We had the museum to ourselves for most of the visit. The museum housed a very extensive collection of lamps that had been collected by the owner. There was a lot...More

We really enjoyed the Lamp Museum. It was really informative and interesting. However, one of our teenagers was really enthused while the other hated it. It's a matter of taste, but I am not terribly interested in lamps and I enjoyed it. If you think...More

Yes the the orgin of lighting was covered up to the present day but unless u love the history of interior lighting then this is probably not for you. We went because it was raining and it was free with the city card

We visited here after time in the adjoining chocolate museum. Didn't really know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Lots of interesting exhibits of lighting from the earliest times; indeed, huge displays of many different forms of early lighting equipment - we were told...More
