This museum tells a fairly complete history of light. Starting from forest fires, the first shells and shell-shaped clay lamps, the technical innovations in oil lamps and ultimately gas and other lamps are presented. There are plenty of exemplar lamps on display, maybe too many. Maybe the technical advances should be explained in movies rather than in text. And I think they could say a little more about the consequences of certain inventions. For example, I remember from the lamp museum in Liège that people had to get out of bed to keep the street lighting going, in medieval times. When longer-lasting lamps were made, this significantly helped people's lives. I missed that information here.
