I must say that this museum is a lovely way to spend a few hours before lunch in Luxembourg city. The city has a rich and varied history due to its central position between Germany, France and Belgium. The museum is an interesting rabbit warren that allows you to explore at your own pace and there is a good variety... More

Never in my life I have seen so much Mermaids on one place like here. In Luxembourg they are called Melusinas and there's an original story of the local one. There was a seria of post-stamps issued of the childrens' drawings of these creatures, also one can purchase a jubilee medals, connected with Luxembourg history.

Not all information available in English, but nice archeological artefacts, pieces of art and a marvelous structure: at the foundations of the museum we can find some evidences of civilizations that lived in Luxembourg thousands of years ago.

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
