Lëtzebuerg City Museum: Living history of the city

This museum brings the capital’s more than one thousand years of history to life: “The Luxembourg Story” is a permanent exhibition that shows the development of the city through countless original artefacts and models, some of them incorporating multimedia animations. The new UNESCO Visitor Centre fits in perfectly here and continues the same historic theme, while two further floors of the museum house temporary exhibitions. The Lëtzebuerg City Museum is housed in four historic buildings which were built between the 17th and 19th centuries, in some cases on medieval foundations. A special highlight is the vast glass lift that can carry up to 65 people at a time along the ancient walls inside the museum.
