The Musee d'Histoire de la Ville is set up to be informative to a local person as opposed to a out-of-country tourist. It is quite interactive.

We wish we'd had more time here. The museum offers a fascinating overview of years of Luxembourg's history. The dioramas were a particularly clever way to show how the site has grown over time. The museum is layered over a number of floors but lockers...More

This is a pleasant museum and is included in the Luxembourg card so is worth a visit. Unfortunately, you can not gain access to any of the main exhibits about the city's history for the next six months at the moment due to renovation and...More
