We spent a couple of hours wandering around this gallery as the works of art were engaging. The works are well placed and the route through all the exhibits is easy to navigate.

The park area surrounding this museum is beautiful. The house Villa Vauban is also well worth a visit. Exhibition halls are good. But we expected to see more in the Villa Vauban...

Beautiful villa, gorgeous gardens featuring the best lawn seen in Luxembourg, and well re-assembled collection of William II and Anna Pavlovna's original collection, previously sold off in 1850, to pay for debts. But, and a very unconformable but, the alarm system for the exhibits is extremely lively, and when you move in to read the description of each exhibit (printed... More

The exhibition was really interesting and it might be that you can enjoy a choir singing outside Villa Vauban. We heard the boy choir singing their last songs. There are several rooms in Villa Vauban and so many masterful artwork. Really worth visiting.

We loved the peace and tranquility of this imaginatively restored Villa. Modern and charming rooms, with interesting art. Permanent and seasonal exhibitions which suited 60+ and 30 something age group. Nice inclusion of Luxembourgish art without being restrictive and great gardens around for those with less patience for the art too!

When I visited, the whole of Villa Vauban was given over to the work of Luxembourg artist Frantz Seimetz. I'm not sure if the exhibition changes every few months. This artist spent something like seven years in the USA, about one hundred and forty years ago, so it's not surprising that quite a lot of the works of art feature... More

The Vaubon is a small art museum located in a park on the outskirts of the city. The collection contains an interesting mix of modern Luxembourg artists and some old masters from the Flemish period. They also had an exhibition of a Luxembourg impressionist that will run through the month of April. A nice way to spend several quiet hours... More

Unfortunately we went to visit on a day when there were no visiting exhibits. The permanent exhibit is very small with only about 30-40 paintings from one artist...check the website before you go!

We spent a lovely Saturday afternoon in the museum, that has a small, but interesting collection of paintings and sculptures. We were the only visitors, so we could really enjoy the exhibition and take all our time. If you want to avoid the crowd and like XIX century French, Belgian and Dutch painters, it's the place to visit.
