“Good price for "family" ticket”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2010

This museum was not bad. First off, the price is right. We paid 9 Euro for a family ticket, and that is pretty good in this area. On the plus side, this museum seems fairly modern and well taken care of. It does have a few fairly good wild animal (stuffed) displays. There are also multiple interactive displays for kids. On the minus side, there is not much to it. Outside of the animals, just about everything is re-made, not original. There is also almost no English, which surprised me for the area. All displays are in French, German and Lëtzebuergesch. Most museums in France, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands , that I have been to, use more English than here. We don't speak any of the mentioned languages, but still enjoyed it.

There is also a small cafe and gift shop. The gift shop has books and other natural history type of things, but again no English. The "no English" is not really a complaint, but may be worth making travelers aware of.

“Not the best, but my daughter loved it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2009

I'm giving this 3 stars just because my daughter loved it so much. I'm not quite sure why, but she did. She's 4. I promised her dinosaurs, which there were none, but she still loved it. There were a lot of stuff animals everywhere and she really liked them. There were footprints on the ground too that she thought were "clues" for something. They led to a stuffed wolf that she thought must be a werewolf at night. Ah, a young imagination. It's only 4.50 to get in and she was free, so I can't complain too much. Don't plan to spend more than an hour here, because there just isn't that much to see. Looked like a really great exhibit on space, but alas, it was only in French and German. The only thing in English was a French flag that we Americans carried to the moon and back and brought them a piece of moonrock that was exhibited with the flag. That's what it takes to get an exhibit in English. Nice. So, in conclusion, good thing to do with a kid to do something for them, since a lot of the other stuff in Luxembourg isn't interesting to a kid, but really not that special for an adult. If you want a great natural history museum, drive the hour and a half to Brussels. Now that place is cool!
