Enter a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes.

From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air and designer Alan Parkinson have astounded audiences across the globe.

Now, as part of our 10th Birthday celebrations we’re delighted to share this unique sensory experience with Lincoln.

A monument to the beauty of light and colour the luminarium is a feast for the senses. Visitors are transported to another world of cavernous domes, tunnels and pods, covering half the size of a football pitch and creating a sense of wonder and enchantment for all ages.

Visitors are invited wander, to lie down, to sit down and enjoy the ambience and the space. Many people find it a transformative experience, with visitors describing it as like walking through a stained glass window or being in a live painting or even like being inside a spaceship.**


The luminarium is accessible to wheelchair users and anyone with mobility issues.

Tickets can be bought on the day (expect queues at busy times).

PLEASE NOTE – due to demand and queuing times it is possible that the line for walk-up tickets may be closed earlier than advertised. Please check social media and Twitter @lpac_lincoln for updates on queue times.
