Daylight is one of the most dynamic expressive elements in architectural design. The strategy of day-lighting plays a significant role in the history of architecture.This study uses some museum’s architectural design cases, discusses the application, adjustment and control strategy of daylight for interior space of a building, and emphasizes on applying daylight in museums from only being’light’to express aesthetic values and feelings. Based on the characteristics of daylight and the lighting requirements of museum’s exhibition space, the advantages and adjustable compensability of daylight as exhibition, esthetics and emotion lighting in museums are discussed.By studying the day-lighting design in architecture and the requirements for museum exhibition lighting, the feasibility and achievability of using daylight in museums for lighting effects are demonstrated. The detailed strategy of using daylight under different circumstances is explained. It hopes to promote this concept applying day-lighting to save energy and to approaching nature in museum design.After analyzing the current lighting design theories and many museum lighting cases, the design of museum’s day-lighting is discussed. In summary, day-lighting design should be a synchronized process with the architectural design of a museum. The building mass, layout, and the lighting opening of the building are among the most important lighting effect factors. A proper architectural design should be developed after thoroughly consideration of the lighting requirements.
