Spring is the best period to visit Luxembourg: the local weather is warm, and there are fewer tourists than in summer. We recommend going there on weekdays or in the morning to avoid crowds.

Musée national d’histoire et d’art Luxembourg, often abbreviated as MNHA, is a museum dedicated to the art and history of Luxembourg. Here are some of the things you can do in this museum:

  • Explore the art and history of Luxembourg. A vast collection of artifacts provides insight into the events that took place on the current territory of Luxembourg. Ancient artifacts from the age of Ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, and more make up the Archaeology collection. Other collections on display include Coins and Medals, Arts and Crafts, and Fine Arts.

What people say about Musée national d'histoire et d'art Luxembourg

July 2022
VERY USEFUL as luxembourg is quite small and public transport with trams very good so all you need is the app and you have the best guide in your mobile phone.

I think this tour is around 15km long depending on your route. Some stops are hard to see on the map, but if you use google maps you should be fine. The tour is definitely not for elderly, children or disabled people as it goes up and downhill. You do see everything Luxembourg has to offer. However, if you’re not interested in museums this is nog for you as it passes all of them. The storyteller is obsessed with heels which is quite annoying. If you did the tour you’ll know what I mean!
