THE MoMS SYSTEM

MUSEUM

The museum takes visitors through 12 rooms, each of which looks at a particular period in history or a particular application sector. It is possible to book guided tours for groups, or individual visits for which a multimedia audio guide is available.  

SHOWROOM

A superlative technological showcase, the showroom provides the opportunity to admire “live” the spectacular effects created by Clay Paky projectors. It is also the ideal location for conventions and professional training courses for lighting designers.

BOOKSHOP

Open to all museum visitors, the bookshop offers the opportunity of purchaising professional publications, technical clothing and gadgets related to the Museum and in general to the world of the showlighting.

LIBRARY & MULTIMEDIA

With its reading room and multimedia room, the library has a series of archives on showlighting: books, journals, slides, videotapes and digital files illustrating the history of showlighting since the 1970s.
