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.

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.

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.

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.
