Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg brings together the city's history and its future by building a modern museum inside of four restored historical houses.

Multimedia displays throughout the museum help you understand the cultural, political, and social changes in the city. These are enhanced by 60 different audiovisual elements that bring history back to life. Finally, view the city itself, riding in the elevator inside a floating glass section of the museum. The glass carriage gives you a view of the Grund district and the Rham plateau, as well as all the museum's floors.

  • Two of five floors closed for renovation.Excellent exhibition about football on other three floors.little on English teams but plenty on Luxembourg including trophies,most of which are antiques! 
  • This is a pleasant museum and is included in the Luxembourg card so is worth a visit. Unfortunately, you can not gain access to any of the main exhibits about the city's history for the next six month...  more »
  • This museum has FREE entrance every Thursday from 6:00 pm. Because of this, I was only allowed into 'Football Hallelujah' exhibit (which will be on until March 2017) rather than other permanent exhibi...  more »

  • Nice museum just close the Palais Gd.Ducal. Note : do not miss the main central elevator which I always found impressive in a such historic and rather small place.
  • The history is well organized, so it is possible to understand quickly why Luxembourg is a great country. The collection is similar to Drëi Eechelen museum - both museums complement each other.
  • Well-presented information. Engaging.
  • I found the design of the museum quite original. Loved the giant glass elevator!
  • Neat museum with a lot of information about the city. Well worth the pittance for entry.
