You can get in free with the city card. Which is good, because I would not have been pleased if I had actually paid. First, It's hard to find! You have to go in through the Chocolate Museum. it was funny watching people standing outside...More

We would never have went to a lamp museum in a million years - how dull and boring. WAIT! With our citycard we went to the chocolate museum and the receptionist asked if we wanted to go to lamp museum too...why not? The museum takes...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 purchased a combined ticket to the Choco Story and Lamp Museum, because we were intrigued by the idea of the Lamp Museum and were staying just a block away. The Lumina Domestica is certainly both far more unique and bizarre than the Chocolate Museum...More

I wouldn't go out of my way for it but we got a ticket as a combined deal with the chocolate museum and the potato museum (yes really) so we trotted round. From a lay person's perspective it's the weakest of the three, but it's...More

The Lamp museum is located in the same building as the Chocolate museum. It is a fantastic collection of lamps with the explanations of how lighting evolved throughout the centuries. This is less popular than the chocolate museum, but give it a chance - you...More
