I visited this museum with my teens and adult children. While most of the explanations of the exhibits are not in English, there is a pamphlet that you can pick up which does some explanation in English at the entrance. This is one of the...More

We went here because we were already at the MUDAM, and didn't really expect much, but found it fascinating. Seeing the actual royally signed ratification documents of the treaty creating Luxembourg as an independent country was really cool! And the film of the Grand Duke's...More

When you are done with Mudam, then I suggest you go around the back and have a look at the Fortress museum, Dräi Eechelen, the entrance fee is €5 and for this you get access to both the fortress collections, a look at the old...More

Thoroughly recommend the temporary exhibition about bridge building on the top floor, particularly the (quite long) video installation. The building itself is fascinating and really pretty from the outside and impressive inside. They give you a little English language pamphlet with information about some of...More

The fort is at the top of a long climb but is well worth the effort. The building dominates the area, as it should! Entrance is €5 and lockers are provided for bags. When I visited (an April Saturday) there were more staff than visitors...More

This is a must see when visiting Luxembourg. Around the corner from Mudam, you can tour the restored fort. Good flow and easy to get around in an hour or less if not busy.

What an unexpected treat this museum was! This historic landmark is the restored remainder of Fort Thungen built in the 1700's and destroyed after many wars as part of an attempted peace. The museum gives a good overview of Luxembourg history from the Middle Ages...More
