Muze'um L

The L in Muze'um L stands for Light and Longitude. This is not a common museum, rather than a contemporary architectural building to discover the 'meridian of light'. A ‘meridian’ or ‘noon line’ runs exactly from north to south. When the sun is exactly at its zenith (the highest point in the sky), the sunlight falls vertically downwards and leaves no shadows left and right (east and west). Architect Marc Van Schuylenberg made a slit of 50cm directly through the roof for sunlight to drop a light line on the ground. This makes the museum an interesting play on architecture and light at any time of the day.

Muze’um L is freely accessible at any time, except for the gallery, which is only open on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm. Visit their website for more.
