An odd marriage of archeology and art

The name of the museum as typically translated is a bit misleading. While there is art, the "history" is more robustly described as archeology. Working your way up from a... read more

Museum spreads through a 7 story new building and 3 preserved historic houses. The houses contain both a fascinating (to architectural history buffs) look at unique local traditional home designs, and a design museum with a surprisingly excellent collection of late 19th and 20th century design. the 3 subterranean floors of the new section showcase a lavish roman villa recently...

The name of the museum as typically translated is a bit misleading. While there is art, the "history" is more robustly described as archeology. Working your way up from a basement carved into the Luxembourg Sandstone, you get a very brief geologic introduction and then a lot of human paleontology, nearly all of which is based on work outside Luxembourg...

I just wished that we'd had more time. The building itself is very interesting as it is made from four old ones, and the historic models of Luxembourg City is fascinating. There was a display of local artwork in a setting like a room, which worked very well – and two more floor we had to miss to catch our... More

The museum has recently undergone a very tastefully done renovation blending in a new building with the older buildings which originally housed the collections. As indicated by the title of the museum, it's collections are wide ranging from archaeological finds, historical artefacts through to art and sculpture covering 20+ centuries. However. for me the stunning masterpiece was the Victen Muse... More

Good for a rainy day... Nice and quiet, but not as impressive as a lot of museums of art that I have seen.

The Musee Nationale de history et d'art Luxembourg is so much more than just what it's name says. It would be without doubt one of the most amazing Museums I have visited and for a county like Luxembourg stunning. It is set across 3 building and plunges down three stories to begin the story of Stone Age Luxembourg. There are... More

We popped into this Museum by chance and ended up spending a few hours here. The Museum is beautifully constructed and presented, making you want to walk from section to section to see what other beautifully presented collection is around the corner. If you are in Luxembourg spend a little time to visit. We went on a Saturday and entrance... More

The national museum of history and art is really an outstanding place to visit. In order not to be overwhelmed by the great offer it's a good idea to check on their website which collection/part of the museum you want to visit. Recently the "Wiltheim wing" reopened which displays very interesting artefacts about the Luxembourgish history. The world known photographer... More

We went to this museum on a Sunday. It was peacefull and no one disturbed us, while we experienced the museum, We saw the most ancient historie from the deepest ground to the most modern art near the roof - or so it seemed. The switch from ancient archaeology to increcingly more modern as one moves upwards is smart. The... More
