Fantastic museum, with a great collection and story. I thought I knew something about Lux City. This was an education that I could have spent three days in. Recommend it to any and all first time, second time, etc. visitors to Lux City.

This place gives you an informative insight into the history of Luxembourg. It is spread out over 5 floors and is nicely laid out. It was priced at 5 Euro’s each so good value for money too. Well worth a visit.

This museum is in a really cool building and it has the largest museum lift I have ever seen - a panoramic one. But the collection isn’t worth much.

We got lost exploring Luxembourg in this marvellous museum. Something to everyone‘s taste can be found here. Foreign languages provided: German, English, French. The only little drawback was that there was no possibility to listen to listen to contemporary witnesses in a particular room in...More

Cashier was not friendly but the guards were even unfriendly. They have items presented which seem to be interactive, for example a turnable boat steering wheel in the middle of the visitor path, but they rudely react when kids touch them. Put a sign there....More

This museum provides a colourful insight into the history of Luxembourg, with lots of displays, interactive exhibits and models which bring it to life. There is however quite a lot of reading, therefore I wouldn't recommend it for or with young children. Entrance was €5...More
