Musée L Visitors' guide

The Musée L is now housed in the former Library of Science and Technology, one of the most iconic buildings in Louvain-la-Neuve. This historic edifice has thus been given a new lease of life, and UCL can showcase its reserves, its collections, its expertise and its educational and museum activities better than ever before. This will open up the university museum to an even wider public – locally, regionally and worldwide. The Musée L's exceptionally rich and diverse permanent collections will invite contemplation, amaze, prompt questions, arouse emotion and encourage visitors to share their 'Musée L experience’ with others.
This guide will unveil and explain the museum’s treasures, helping you to navigate your way from room to room and from one marvellous discovery to the next.
