Here at ERCO Lighting UK we understand the power of light within the museum space. With our range of energy-efficient luminaires, we work with museums to create environment's which illuminate narratives to empower and educate visitors and provide spaces which promote wellbeing and contemplation.
Museums and galleries are the UK’s most popular visitor attractions, with over 50 million visits a year! Museums & Galleries play a vital role lighting plays in the visitor experience. The right light has the power to instantly captivate the visitor, by communicating drama or contemplation within the exhibition space, altering the atmosphere or drawing the eye to a historic artifact.
For forty years, we have been at the forefront of museum & gallery lighting, paving the way for historic and iconic buildings to bring their buildings and technology forward into the 21st century, integrating modern solutions to illuminate their spaces. We are now able to align with the need to explore energy efficient and sustainable solutions.

Dulwich Picture Gallery
The world's oldest specially built art gallery, has marked the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt's death with an extraordinary exhibition celebrating the role of light both in the creation and content of his work. In a bold and innovative move, the gallery invited award-winning cinematographer Peter Suschitzky to create lighting specially tailored to the exhibition, 'Rembrandt's Light', using a new ERCO LED lighting system with wireless Bluetooth control.
