Learning the history of Luxembourg @ the Luxembourg City Musem 

Despite its very small size Luxembourg has a very rich history, which somehow reflects the complexity of the European history. Since may 2017 the Luxembourg City Museum holds  a permanent exibition about The Luxembourg Story. 

The turbulent and some how complex history of Luxembourg is presented in an easy-to-understand path. Objects are presented with a new variable colour-coded panelling system helping to better highlight different themes.

By following the chronology of urban development, divided into four major periods and 17 topics, the exhibition focuses on the most important and characteristic aspects of each period.
The exhibition extends within 2,200m2 of impressive space on three floors.

The Luxembourg Story is also accessible thourgh interactive tools to help visitors deepen their understanding of how Luxembourgers used to live.

The topics are:

  • 10th to 18th century
    The medieval town – The fortress – Citizens and soldiers – Churches and monasteries
  • 19th century
    The path to independence – The capital city – The end of the fortress – The open city – The industrial city – Trade in the city – The citizens’ city
  • 20th century
    The city in crisis – Under German occupation – The European city – The financial centre – The changing city
  • 21st century
    Future Outlook
