Great museum
Jul 2020
This is a very good museum. Free entry, apart from some exhibitions you have to pay few euros for if you want to see them. Some things are in English, and some are not. This problem is solved by an audio guide, but that is not possible at the moment due to covid-19. However, since it's a free entry I have no complaints, and would highly recommend it.

The best museum in town
Jun 2020
Like in most museums across Luxembourg, there are no English texts, and during the corona pandemic, there are no audioguides available. So some knowledge of French or German or Letzenburgish will help. The museum houses a very nice and well preserved mosaic, as well as other Roman artefacts. The archaeological section is certainly the strongest part, but there are also some nice early Christian objects on display. There is further generally 2 temporary exhibitions, for which you need to pay. The permanent collection is free.

Venture inside, it’s worth it!

From the outside, this museum is just a big white box, rather un-inviting except for the banner that promises free entry. The free part applies only to the permanent collection and exhibition areas, but that is plenty when you realize the 5-story building is matched by 5 floors below ground level. We only had time for a couple of floors, and chose the Art in Luxembourg gallery, and two levels from Roman times. We enjoyed the modern and contemporary works by national artists, but have to say it was the Roman mosaic of the muses that really took our breathe away. A 61.3 square metre masterpiece only discovered in 1995 in a region of Luxembourg (Vichten) that was known to have been a Roman settlement circa 240 AD. It took two years to restore but it is quite magnificent, and displayed along with a variety of sculptured pieces, fragments of other tile mosaics and wall frescos, coins, and other artifacts from the Vichten area.

Free for students but no English translations
Dec 2019
The exhibitions were extensive and well laid out for a nice experience. Unfortunately we were unable to take in the extent of meaning and history as there were no English translations for the text. Despite this, we still had a nice time when it was raining in the City and stumbled across the museum.

Good for rainy days warm and dry

We had hoped for better weather but alas it poured all day. We popped into the tourist office and they suggested museums. With our 21 year old in tow we explored all floors. An interesting museum with plenty of information, free cloakroom and a much needed cafe.

Great museum & free
Dec 2019 • Solo
There is lots to see in this massive museum in a new building. It’s also free! On the bottom floor you can see remains of a Roman building and the Roman section was my favourite part. It’s situated in the city centre so easy to get to.

Excellent museum

A fantastic museum. The archeological section is better than the art section in my opinion

A new extension is being built which will give more space for new exhibits

The archeological bit of the museum has some really fine Gallo Roman finds

Great museum!
Jan 2020
We found it accidentally while walking to Casemate du Bock, but later returned, since the building looked very attractive. It turned out, the museum is free of charge! It is also open until 6 p.m and until 8 p.m Thursdays.
It is a perfect place if you want to see art and history collection of Luxembourg or simply rest a bit on your way. The archeological section is very big, and it also contains at least two big art sections - old masters and art of Luxembourg.
The structure is much bigger than it seems at first. I would recommend to concentrate on one topic and come back another day if interested. The description is mostly in French, but there are also German and English translations could be found.
There is also a small cafe and a museum shop wuth souvenirs and great book selection.
