The city was generally a bit complex as to needing you to check out was was open and when. Exhibition were being remounted. Sometimes shows were threadbare or occupie whole museums (no choice as to what to view for example) other like this totally closed at this period. ODD

This was a real disappointment I'm afraid to say. It's housed in the old Abbey hospital but unfortunately on my visit the majority of the museum was closed off for renovation work leaving only the top floor open. The exhibition there was modern and well laid out but there was no English information. The member of staff on duty looked... More

I quite enjoy visiting the natur musée, which translates as nature museum. At the moment only the temporary exhibition is accessible as the permanent collection is getting renovated and changed. In my opinion, their temporary exhibitions are always worth a visit. Their current temporary exhibition, "Orchidées, cacao et colibris – Naturalistes et chasseurs de plantes luxembourgeois en Amérique latine" chronicles... More

We only popped in here to avoid the rain but what a lovely bunch of people working there. The museum is undergoing a refurbishment so the second floor is closed but on the top floor we met a very friendly half Italian man who told us about the exhibition in English and gave us free chocolates. The lady in the... More

This was a very interesting museum, one of my favourites in the city. It was also interactive with lots of animal sounds, costumes, etc.

My friend and I wanted to pass some time before dinner and thought my daughter would like the Natural History Museum (we were already in the Grund). It's a shame that the permanent collection is shut right now so only the current special exhibition is available, but the South America exhibition was fantastic. It is still full price, though I'm...

We discovered this museum because Luxembourg has a weekend when all museums are free to enter - what a fantastic idea! We went along. We found wonderful things here that we had never seen before, the only problem was that it was over very quickly because the museum itself is quite small. I hope that will change in the future....

The museum is really good the only problem is now you can only visit the second floor and the first one is closed for the moment but still you will enjoy it
