    Philips LED lamps shine a light on the museum’s exhibitions, attract and guide visitors, and provide high quality functional lighting for barge crew. 

    The Waterfront Museum, housed aboard an antique barge in Red Hook, Brooklyn, recently upgraded its lighting with our energy-efficient Philips 14W PAR38 and Philips 8.8W A19 LED lamps. The new museum lighting has helped create a warm, inviting environment for visitors to learn about maritime history and enjoy cultural programming along the New York Harbor.

    The PAR38 LED lamp with glass housing has a beautifully crafted lens that matches the look and feel of traditional halogen bulbs. It’s also UL WET rated and provides a uniform beam, ideal for this barge setting, enhancing the museum’s exhibits, performances, and other special events. 

     

    The Philips A19 LED lamp is equivalent to a 60-watt light bulb. It’s dimmable, with a premium color rendering index (CRI) of 90, delivers vibrant, natural colors, accentuates the space and displays, and meets the crew’s functional lighting requirements.

    In addition to these benefits, the Waterfront Museum will be able to reduce maintenance and operational costs with the LED lamps’ longer lifetime and energy efficiency. 

     

    “The Philips LED lighting has given new life to our floating historic treasure, one that can attract interest and creativity and grow community,” said David Sharps, President of the Waterfront Museum. “We look forward to welcoming back school classes and visitors to our renewed space as soon as we can.”
