Museum Lighting Guide

A practical  guide is designed to help those working or volunteering in museums to understand the main aspects of museum lighting and how to plan a lighting project. It has a particular focus on LED lighting; the technology is rapidly improving bringing a range of new lighting options to market.

The guide also aims to introduce terminology used by lighting suppliers and contractors so that museum personnel can more confidently brief contactors to ensure desired outcomes are achieved.

It was written by the SEMD  and the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC, with significant contributions and case studies from members of the  SEWS Museum Facilities Managers Forum in 2016/7
