National Museum of History and Art
Marché-aux-Poissons / L-2345 Luxembourg
The museum exhibit is laid out over ten levels, five of which are dug into the rock below ground level, and is designed to be chronological. Moving from one floor up to the next, the visitor experiences a journey through time, from the realms of prehistory to the latest artistic experiments. The archaeology rooms show the evolution of human presence on the national territory, from prehistoric vestiges to the late Middle Ages. Among the most precious exhibits is an impressive series of aristocratic tombs from the late Iron Age, and the famous Roman mosaic of the Muses from Vichten. The numismatic exhibit features representative samples of Celtic, Roman, Medieval and modern coins. The art collections include old paintings, such as the famous Bacchus, Venus and Cupid (circa 1530/1531) by Rosso Fiorentino, as well as modern and contemporary art from Luxembourg and other countries.
