National Museum of History and Art
In its new building, inaugurated in 2002, and in three historic houses renovated in 2014, the National Museum of History and Art shows the national archaeological, historical and artistic collections in more than 6,000 m2. It is a key cultural attraction for those who wish to understand the history of Luxembourg through its public collections. The Museum’s prologue offers an uplifting introduction by displaying a brief history of the country and the Museum since 1839. The visitor is then invited to continue his journey along the route of his choice. There are four circuits to choose from: territorial archaeology from prehistory to the middle ages; national and international painting and sculpture from the 14th century to the present day; life in Luxembourg from the 16th century to the present day; and monetary history from antiquity to the present day. Beyond the newly outfitted permanent collections featuring the jewels of the Museum, the MNHA also regularly offers major temporary exhibitions that resonate with its own collections. Visitors can also admire works by the famous Luxembourg-born American photographer Edward Steichen.
