Welcome to «Old Lighting» Virtual Museum

The Virtual Museum of Electric Lamps and Historical Lighting is a community of devoted specialists and hobbyists who enjoy collecting and using electric lamps, luminaires and control gear produced in the past, as well as finding and sharing technical and historical information on this topic. We mostly appreciate pieces of professional lighting equipment, which means less chandeliers and more discharge lamps. As we position ourselves as mostly historic-oriented, we do not welcome LED lamps, chinese CFLs and other widespread and ultra-modern equipment here.

Articles in native English

Though our website is not completely translated yet, we have some materials originally written in English. Some of our European members also write articles in English that are translated later. So below you can find a list of all articles that do not require Google Translate to be read in English. Hopefully their quality is a bit better :)
