Mudam, musée d’art contemporain au Luxembourg, se veut attentif à toutes les disciplines artistiques et ouvert au monde. Sa collection et sa programmation reflètent les tendances de la création actuelle et rendent compte de l’émergence de nouvelles pratiques artistiques à l’échelon national et international.Le bâtiment, œuvre de l’architecte sino-américain Ieoh Ming Pei, dialogue à merveille avec son environnement naturel et historique. Adossé aux vestiges du Fort Thüngen dont il épouse le tracé des anciens murs d’enceinte.

Hidden in the Business District

This is a relatively small museum hidden behind the philharmonic but designed beautifully. Take some time to check it out.

Interesting and beautiful museum. Collection is great as well. Even worth a visit for the building on its own. A bit unsettling that the museumstaff follows you around everywhere you go in the museum but understandable since the art that's displayed is mostly from private collections. Recommended!

The staff here are beyond rude and follow you around making you feel like you are a criminal. It's hugely unsettling and I left ASAP. Pity as some of the installations looked good but the museum police don't allow lovely reflection. Awful awful awful. But the fortress behind is nice.. Go there instead!

I loved this museum for so many reasons. I approached it from the side of the old fortifications, and the modern glass architecture of MUDAM is striking against the 1000+ year old walls. It's a great size, not too tiring to walk around in a few hours and you're not bored by the end of it. The exhibitions were well... More

Great place to get in touch with a different type of art. Thank you for making the effort of bringing modern art to the Duchy. When would it be a POP art expo? Thanks

If you love modern art, have a visit here. The building itself is modern and the art collection will make you think and think and think !! The movie of the nuclear detonations is worth seeing . It has a very nice cafe too to have a good break after all those thinking !!! :)

well worth a visit - great modern light building set on the foundations of the old fortifications. Thought provoking and interesting installations and films, better than average modern art and well worth a few hours visit

This museum building is worth a visit as much as the work on show. Very interesting modern architecture in the centre of the old fort. Thought provoking work and a delightful cafe.

If not for its collection, for sure for the quality of the installments and exhibitions, as well as for the location and architecture of its seat. I believe this museum is really one of the best across Europe. The dimension of Luxembourg makes it always a good option to visit without too many people around. And, on average, the exhibitions...

Featuring multiple exhibits over the year, and employing really friendly staff, this cheap museum is a very easy place to visit and fill your brain with culture. They also have a very nice cafe/restaurant, hosting corporate lunches during the week, with very nice wines! If you're visiting Luxembourg, defiantly worth spending an afternoon here.
