A latin word meaning light, the lumen is also the measuring unit of its power, as perceived by the human eye. Come and see light under all angles and analyze its behaviour by handling different light sources and obstacles. Let yourself be dazzled by the magic of refraction and discover polarization!

This exhibit has been produced with the financial contribution from the governement of Canada.
