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.

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

We visited mainly for the history related exhibits which are arranged below ground level. The deeper you go, the further back in history the exhibits take you. This is a very impressive building particularly because it is hewn out of the rock face. Highlight of the extensive Roman section is a well preserved mosaic floor featuring the muses believed to date from about 240 AD. On the lowest floors, bronze age dwellings take you back to 12,000 years BC. There is so much to see here it is possible to spend upwards of half a day. Everything is very well curated and presented. History exhibition is free, there are other art related areas where a ticket is required.

The mnha changed its name and is now called "mnaha" (musée national d'archéologie, histoire et art).

Entry to permanent collection is free.

You could spend days visiting the exceptional and very interesting collections.
Check the museums website (English, French, German) and "prepare" your visit.

My favorite to visit and revist is the mosaic of Vichten showing the 9 muses (daughters of Zeus).
Take the elevator to -2, best spot for enjoying and taking a picture of the mosaic which was discovered in Lux./Vichten and restored to its old beauty.

The informations are almost "French only", but you can still enjoy a great, memorable visit ... for free.

The Nationalmusée is located in the ❤ of Luxembourg city, Fëschmart/"Fishmarket". Close to the "Palais Grandducal".

No ticket purchase/reservation needed for the huuuuge permanent exhibitions. Several floors, 2 buildings to explore: one very modern building and also a historic, old building where you must "mind your head" 😉

Plenty of interesting artefacts to admire and history to discover.

The Nationalmusée is a must visit place, my favorite museum in Lux.city.

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.

This is Luxembourg's main art and history museum. Right at the capital's historic downtown, it is a large place to understand the country from prehistory to contemporary development. More recent topics like household appliances and home design in the past decades are also covered. Visitors will have their own knowledge of the Luxembourgish way. Free admission except temporary exhibitons.
