We did not venture into the newer building, after the long walk to the top of the hill (a very interesting walk) we went into the museum and were fortunate enough to latch on to a tour guide taking a small group into the tunnels. These were quite narrow and small but quite interesting to see. There is also a... More

Clean spacious museum and art gallery. Huge museum and sometimes difficult to navigate as you cross cross levels and buildings. I enjoyed the art collection most

Great chronological history of the Luxembourg region, starting from the earliest traces of human civilization through present day. Signs in French, with English translations available in binders on each floor.

We went particularly to see the Roman artifacts, which filled 3 sections of 3 floors of this museum. The museum has no entrance fee to see its standard exhibits, but there was a big show of "Mummies!" for which they were charging a fee. After 3 hours, we couldn't take in any more information, so we went to the little... More

worth visiting, it's one of the cases where the setup of the museum itself is as interesting as the showpieces.

yes apart from the , in my eyes, wrong dating, you first can see, the undergrounds of luxembourg -city, that's fine, but this museum has also some remarkable paintings of luxemburgers from the 1800's, AND they do not show them often, they have a collection of the photographs of Edward Steichen, that alone , is worth a visit

The building that houses the museum is itself worth seeing. It is truly stunning inside combining old and new, linked by an amazing stairwell that goes down as many floors as it goes up, The collections are eclectic including art, as well as historical artefacts from the Roman period. The temporary Mummies exhibition is a unique collection of mummies beautifully... More

I saw the exhibition about mummies and if you are a fan of those, don't miss it! Although don't go before dinner like I did... your apptetite will be sorely spoiled! Wish I would have had the time to see the other exhibitions as well.
