Nice gallery in a nice setting!

We really enjoyed the temporary and permanent exhibits. The building is really cool, and the gardens outside were lovely. Good value

Small art museum in a beautiful building that for the exhibition purposes has been extended. The modern part attached suits the surroundings very well . The garden is large and pleasant.

This is a very small museum, and it can usually host small exhibitions. It's permanent collection is limited in works by well known artists. Or if they exist they are not always exhibited. We were there in May and enjoyed the beautiful grounds, appreciated the modern addition but we're quite disappointed in what was on offer to see.

The Villa is located in a huge park, which is very beautiful. Lot of seasonal exhibitions are held in the Villa, and plan your visit when there is a good one going there. Other than that, there are some permanent exibits also hosted there but they are not very exciting. I loved the park a lot ! The entrance fee... More

Temporary exhibitions are held in the villa, the last one I saw being "A royal passion for art" showing part of the collection once owned by Guillaume II and Ana Pavlovna. The... More

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
