The Liege Lighting Museum exhibits important lighting objects and mechanisms, used all over the world, dating from prehistory to the 21st century.

Discover more than 1000 pieces, grouped together by theme. Every one sheds light on the evolution of lighting systems. With examples from Europe, the USA, Africa and Asia, you will learn everything there is to know about lighting:

  • candles
  • oil lamps
  • gas lamps
  • petrol lamps
  • limelight lamps
  • wood gas lamps
  • tight oil lamps
  • electric lamps

From the most simple to the most extraordinary, from the most sober to the most sophisticated, the Liege Light Museum offers everyone an opportunity to get to know this, sadly less-known, facette of human ingenuity.

Light tells its story...

Since the first flickerings of Roman oil lamps to our latest generation, energy efficient bulbs, the Lighting Museum invites guests to discover the magic of this stunning collection.

The museum owes its existence, in large part, to the donation of part of Philippe Deitz's collection of ancient lights.

Philippe Deitz has been collecting ancient lights since the age of 15. He is the founder of MUVILUM - Le Musée vivant du luminaire (The Living Light Museum) and is the author of "History of Lights. History of Man."
