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.

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.

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.

It was fun to see all the history elements of the surrounding area. However everything was only in French. There is an audiotour available (for a small fee) and there are translation books on every level. We walked around and just looked at the objects.

With the Luxembourg card we were able to visit the other exhibitions which were very pretty and interesting.

There is alot in the museum and it is free apart from the exhibitions. It was hard to navigate around and the lift had a mind of its own. Lots to see you will need at least 4 hrs. Unfortunately the cafe was not open so we went across the road and got a lovely coffee for on 1:50Euros

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.

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.

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.

For some strange reason Luxembourg built this beautiful art and history building right in the city centre. The only problem is that the designer assumed that only French speakers would be interested, despite the fact it's dap smack in the middle of a touristy area. Everything is in French with no other language options available. Very odd. Free to enter and good to kill an hour or so. Even with English translations there isn't that much here, at least from the history point of view.

The art section costs money to see and I didn't visit.

Another freebee thing to do in Luxembourg City. Absolutely incredible building built into the rock of the city. 7/8 floors split across 2 buildings. Interesting mixture of national museum stuff, art and furniture. We really enjoyed it. Well worth a look
