Light tells its story...
From the flickering of Roman oil lamps to our energy efficient bulbs: the Light Museum invites guests to discover the magic of its stunning collection.
The museum owes its existence, in large part, to the donation of part of Philippe Deitz's collection of vintage light fixtures.
Philippe Deitz had been collecting vintage light fixtures since the age of 15. He is the founder of MUVILUM - Le Musée vivant du luminaire (The Living Light Museum) and the author of "History of Light. History of Man."
