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

This museum is accessed from the Chocolate museum and there's a tricky step into the first part, which is in darkness in order to show how the first light was made by fire. We both tripped over this step. There wasn't an attendant anywhere in...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
