Comprehensive art museum

Very airy and unworn museum. Most artworks had an explanatory text which is nice when you're not very experienced with modern art.

Compact museum with good selection of pictures and sculptures. You won't find any masterpiece here, but that is okay since the permanent collection is free of charge.

The museum is very well realized, in different floors that are to be visited from the lower to the upper, starting from the paleolithic to our times. The lower floors are excavated in the rock, which is left uncovered and helps in creating a good atmosphere to appreciate the ancient times. There is a magnificent Roman mosaic at the third... More

The museum is in a modern building with displays on various levels which can be accessed via a very slow lift or by walking up lots of flights of stairs. The day we visited they had a mummy display which has some very interesting exhibits but this is a traditional type museum with very little interaction and little of the... More

The museum just re-opened and I have to say it makes the best of the inventory it has - in a way the museum itself is nicer than the exhibits. Great work.

They just re-opened some of their exhibits in the spring, and it's fantastic. They have books on each floor in various languages - other than English I didn't notice what others. They also have some explanations that make the exhibits easier to understand for those of us who are not art or history buffs - an example I remember is... More

Great museum over several floors. An interesting selection of art across history. The Roman mosiac floor was impressive and some lovely old master paintings. Worth a visit - the permanent collection is free.

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...

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
