Louvain-la-Neuve : le Musée L | Où Wallons-nous ?

A fascinating collection

Masterpieces (by Rembrandt, Goya, Picasso, Magritte, Alechinsky...), natural history specimens, archaeological and anthropological artefacts, scientific machines and inventions... Going from one object to the other in Museum L is a real invite to connecting different thoughts and dreaming.

Three "experimental labs" allow the public to understand how these many gems were conceived. Visitors will also find printed guides along the way or can borough media guides (for a fee) from reception.

The L museum trail

There are 5 themes to explore, each reflecting the path taken by inventors and designers. Visitors can

  • marvel at a curiosity cabinet,
  • wonder about many mysteries with Louvain-la-Neuve's researchers
  • learn how to share knowledge and information such as writings and calculations
  •  be moved by art gems from different eras (from antiquity to the 20th century)
  • contemplate real masterpieces from a collector's point of view.
  • Visit, on request, one of the archive parts of the museum storing moulds

Spaces dedicated to the public

  • The site stretches over 6 hectares and has reading areas, lounges and picnic places
  • Families can join a collective artwork this summer: a scale model in which the pieces created will be placed. Pictures will be placed in the media library until September 11, 2022
