Villa Vauban – Art Museum of the City of Luxembourg
18, avenue Émile Reuter / L-2090 Luxembourg
This 19th-century bourgeois mansion with a modern extension is located in the heart of the city, in the relaxing setting of an old park. The exhibitions hosted by the Villa Vauban present the collections of the City of Luxembourg, made up largely of 17th-century Dutch art works and 19th-century French history paintings and landscapes. The museum varies its exhibition formats, enabling the works to be explored from different angles: the art collectors, the unusual aspects and “life” of the paintings, the artists, the subjects, and so on. High-profile temporary exhibitions feature loans from major international collections. A varied programme of activities awaits the visitor.
