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.

All natural history museums around the world can stop trying, it's already been done to perfection: New York and London has done it for everyone. There are no better museums showcasing early man's lifestyle than the Natural History Museum in London and New York. Luxembourg's attempt leaves you wondering why would anyone dig 6 floors underground to display items that... More

This museum is housed in an amazing building and all the rooms are like a maze. The history floors show interesting models of how the city has grown over the years. There are some interesting artefacts from different eras. Good interpretation panels in different languages. There is a massive glass lift that takes you to different floors! The top floors... More
