“Surprising and illuminating!”

Lumina Domestica - The Lamp Museum
Ranked #94 of 158 things to do in Bruges
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 June 2016

If you are visiting the Choco-story, and have a Brugge City Card, then don't miss this! It is a surprising little museum that charts the onset of how we came to have lighting - with quite a few interesting facts that you will not have known beforehand. It's quite a contrast to the Choco-Story but lovely in itself and as it;s in the same building why not do both?

Obscure exhibition and quite enlightening. Worth the visit for the pure audacity of the curator to exhibit such a display.

Very Odd. We paid the extra to add this museum tour tagged onto the end of the chocco museum tour. Actually quite glad we did. The chocco museum was most odd...kids did not enjoy it and we only had a laugh because it was so awful you had to laugh! I actually found this lamp museum slightly more interesting. Infact back on the cruise ship that evening a question came up about lamps! I got it correct... Something to do on a not so bright day and I was gald it wasn't too pricy as I would have been slightly miffed. Still we made it fun, if not because we took the pee out of it...We even still talk about it now!

Had to traipse through cramped Choco-Story (full of confused kids and stressed parents desperately trying to pretend that museum was fun because: chocolate) to finally make it to wonderful idiosyncratic lamp museum.

I must say a huge thank you to the generous collector who decided to share his passion with the general public. The museum has an overwhelming number if lamps from the earliest prehistoric lamps through to LED.

Very thoughtfully put together, I found the museum to be an unexpected delight and was sorry to leave. It was kind of zen after the chocolate museum.

Hard to find old building off the tourist trail housing a very modern, well presented,and very large display of domestic lighting from cave dwellers to present day.
Well worth seeking out.
