I did not know what to expect of this small museum after reading the reviews online. Two exhibits were on display when I visited. I enjoyed the most the room showcasing Luxembourg painters. The gardens are beautiful.

We visited the museum late in the afternoon. It was a particularly warm August Saturday. The garden was beautifull with dahlias, lily's and more flowers in full bloom. The building is larger on the inside than the outside would suggest. There were two temporary exhibitions. Peintures du Romantisme européen and the other one displaying the latest additions to their catalogue.... More

Delightful small art museum located in a sizable park of the city. The collection was organized around, the senses, such as smell, touch, vision, hearing, etc.. The staff was very friendly and helpful, to us to find signage & literature in English.

Small art museum in a beautiful building that for the exhibition purposes has been extended. The modern part attached suits the surroundings very well . The garden is large and pleasant.

This is a very small museum, and it can usually host small exhibitions. It's permanent collection is limited in works by well known artists. Or if they exist they are not always exhibited. We were there in May and enjoyed the beautiful grounds, appreciated the modern addition but we're quite disappointed in what was on offer to see.

The Villa is located in a huge park, which is very beautiful. Lot of seasonal exhibitions are held in the Villa, and plan your visit when there is a good one going there. Other than that, there are some permanent exibits also hosted there but they are not very exciting. I loved the park a lot ! The entrance fee... More
