This museum is situated in the heart of Luxembourg City and contains several different enthralling exhibits (the majority of these are free to view). Archaeological finds from the country are documented and explained (the museum itself is even built into the remains of an ancient site). Further to this, Luxembourg's more contemporary history, and evolution of its utilised currency are... More

A comprehensive collection of art and history. We had very little time and did not do this museum justice to really take it in, but what we did see was good

We hadn't planned to go anywhere in particular on our visit to Luxembourg and was recommended this Museum by a member of staff elsewhere. I'm really glad we went and it was a perfect rainy day activity to keep us in the warm while we were in Luxembourg. I was really impressed with the building itself and how it is... More

The MNHA is a compact museum displaying art and artifacts of Luxembourg. The main building is organized around a beautiful central courtyard. The lowest levels start with pre-historical periods (naturally) and are built over medieval foundations (protected behind glass). You then work your way up through the centuries, from the Roman era through the Dark Ages and into the medieval... More

What an incredible museum. This newly built and reconstructed museum was finished in 2002. There's a large new wing that's connected to several old townhouses that you can also tour. I loved it. There's tons to see here. Many of the reviews here are confusing this museum with a smaller museum that is under renovation. Ignore those reviews.. this is... More

For starters two of the most recent reviews below on exhibits being closed are for the WRONG MUSEUM. The city history museum is closed until May 2017 (save for a temporary exhibition of football). The national museum on the other hand is very open with an incredible collection of artifacts from prehistory to the Middle Ages (with a particular emphasis... More

The museum is really great but one remark - small part of it includes English translation. There is no entrance fee so that is ok. But, after speaking with the girls at the entrance on English, we were offered to visit two exhibitions for a fee, which we accepted, but we weren't informed there was no English translation, so we...

Closed for renovation works. Unless you want to see the single exhibit of the history of football. Whose history, world or Luxembourg ? I’m not sure as we didn’t enter and I’m not aware of any football significance with Luxembourg.

I saw a very poor exhibition of Football. It was terrible. I am not a technophobe but it was difficult to follow. It was super glitzy and impressive but not at all interesting especially as I know nothing of football nor interested in it. The museum was a bit of a mess.

This museum has a bit of everything, from prehistoric cave dwellers to ipods. The place is quite spread out and haphazard so it's easy to get lost. That's part odd the fun though!
