Letzebuerg City Museum brings together the city's history and its future by building a modern museum inside of four restored historical houses. Beneath the street level, the permanent exhibit of the city's architectural and urban development is displayed chronologically. The upper floors host temporary exhibits with urban themes. Multimedia displays throughout the museum help you understand the cultural, political, and social changes in the city. These are enhanced by 60 different audiovisual elements that bring history back to life. Finally, view the city itself, riding in the elevator inside a floating glass section of the museum. The glass carriage gives you a view of the Grund district and the Rham plateau, as well as all the museum's floors. Visit the vaulted cellars beneath the city museum that were discovered 1990s for an extra treat. A Luxembourg City card gets you admission to the museum, but you can also buy a ticket on arrival. A visit to Letzebuerg City Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Luxembourg City journey planner to plot your vacation.

I highly recommend visiting the museum. It has multiple expositions, some of them are permanent, some other are temporary. The one about the history of Luxembourg is fairly interesting and shows the country 's heritage in an original and colourful manner. The museum is located in a beautiful spot in the city center, with a breath-taking view on the valley. Worth visiting for tourists, but also just for common Luxembourgish or expatriés🇱🇺🦊
Interesting historical museum of the city of Luxembourg with a free entrance. Much more interesting to visit than Musee Drai Eechelen (a museum dedicated purely to the history of the fortress, located on the other side of the river). Also it's very convenient that it's usually open till 8pm. On the content: I loved the multiple models of the city at different moments in history. However, as a big fan of history, I wish there was more of a historical narrative presented here. Also the navigation around the museum could have been marked a bit better.
