Museums and cultural centers in Luxembourg

Last time updated

Museums are an undeniably important part of any country — they are a source of education and entertainment, they provide a sense of cultural heritage, promote tourism, and can be a great option for social gatherings.

Despite its small size, Luxembourg has a rich history and an impressive cultural heritage. The beautiful museums of the Grand Duchy preserve the cultural heritage and treasures of the country. You can visit them with your family or alone, and enjoy some art and history in your free time.

The Night of Museums (or Nuit des Mesees) is an annual event that takes place in many cities and countries around the world, including Luxembourg. During this event, museums and cultural institutions stay open late into the night and offer a range of special activities and events, such as guided tours, concerts, and workshops.

In Luxembourg, the Night of Museums usually takes place in the middle of autumn or the first half of October.

In previous years, the event has included over 40 museums and cultural institutions throughout the country, including the Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of History and Art, and other historic places.

Visitors can purchase a single ticket that provides access to all participating museums, and free shuttle buses are often provided to transport visitors between venues. The event is a great opportunity to explore Luxembourg's rich cultural heritage and enjoy a fun night out with friends and family.

The next 22nd edition of the Night of the Museums will come this year on October 14, 2023, with a special program of performances, music, special guided tours, workshops, and culinary surprises in the seven main museums in Luxembourg City.

"Hello, chat! I wanted to write about a museum that suddenly fits well with an active 2-4-year-old kid – Villa Vauban 🔥

There's a hall where the paintings from the museum are being projected on the walls and they are animated (portraits are winking, flowers are growing, the sea is rustling). These paintings are fun to look around the museum halls and pay attention to the details: our kid is looking for ducks in all the paintings just like in Merle Park 😁

This museum simply doesn't come to mind first when you suddenly want to go on a short trip during the rain, for example, but in the meantime, it's cool and the staff there is lovely and very kids-friendly ❤️

There used to be special tours for parents of very young babies. And as a bonus, with the same tickets, you can go to the Luxembourg City History Museum afterwards, which is great 😍", —
