The article reviews the problem of light design of a modern museum not only as a place for conservation and demonstration of art works but also as a leisure place. Contemporary lighting technologies applied in museums are reviewed, advantages of adoption of LED lighting in museums are described, major problems and objectives specific for lighting of exhibits in museums as well as possible methods and ways of their solution by light designers are described.
