Opening of Museum L

From 01/11/2017 - CPI : 14/11/2017

Museum L: an exciting new university museum presenting a dialogue between scientific collections and art works Located in Louvain-la-Neuve, less than 30 km from Brussels, the new museum of the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL), Museum L, will open in a completely renovated building on the 18th of November. This will be Belgium’s very first large-scale university museum, with an area of more than 3,830 m² open to the public. Its distinguishing features will be the dialogues that are set up between the art works and UCL’s unique scientific collections, and three labs where the public can handle exhibits. A Buddha next to a medieval Christ, ancient writings alongside calculating machines... Museum L, with 32,000 items in its collection, explores some new and unusual encounters that tell us about the world and our humanity. Art works are not the only thing on display: the museum also presents the UCL’s scientific collections. Natural history specimens, archaeological and ethnographic objects and scientific inventions are all on show in 2,580 m² of exhibition space at the heart of a building that is a landmark of modern Belgian architecture. Museum L is not like other museums: it is a place of living dialogue and exciting discovery.
