The building itself is modern and exciting, a suitable place for a museum. The exhibitions were well thought out, and had many interesting pieces. We visited at midday on a Saturday, and had the entire museum practicly to ourselves. The lower floors (prehistoric until roman era) were interesting, but only some parts of the exhibition was translated into english. The... More

I visited this museum as entrance was free with the Luxembourg Card. I would have preferred to have been given a map or brief introduction to the museum but I established it is best to start from the bottom up. It was disappointing that more information wasn't available on the building itself, which is carved into the rock, although this... More

Use your Luxembourg card to get in and to see the museum. Visit the bottom floor for the prehistoric exhibit and travel up to see the art through the ages.

The city is small and the collection in the museum is not great if compared with the mainstream museums. However, it is worth going there and spend a couple of hours.

We spent a couple of hours here and learnt a lot about the country, it is well priced at 5 euro. We became lost a couple of times as exits re not clear. The are a few small stairs dotted around. My partner actually fell in one section that was all white with white couches, the staff on the particular... More

This museum is well located in the centre of the city. It cost 10 euros in total for a family of four (students free), and is spread over 5 floors. Not knowing much about the history of the country before visiting, so we all learnt a lot, and the video about WWII was very interesting, especially for our children who... More

What's surprising? Well, two things: firstly, that this attraction is currently at number 13 and not higher. Secondly, that I had not anticipated spending three hours plus inside. The conversion of three old properties to form this museum had been not in such a way as to blend old and new architectural styles. It's superb. The visitor starts at the... More

An evening post conference event was arranged in this spacious museum - with the lower level provided for informal networking, I was quite interested in the stone-age artefacts displayed throughout level "- 5" in this surprisingly subterranean museum. A great modern approach for the display ancient artefacts.

Very modern museum, easy to find at the back of the Ducal Palace, low entry price. Way bigger than it appears on the outside, due to the many subterranean levels. The lower you go, the older the era on display. Very instructive reconstructions of old buildings, digs and caves on the lower levels. Very affordable, too.
