Lëtzebuerg City Museum

The Lëtzebuerger City Museum presents the urban, social, economic and political evolution of the city of Luxembourg in the form of permanent and temporary exhibitions, bringing over 1.000 years of the history of the Grand-Duchy's capital to life.

Thus, discover the whole history of Luxembourg City in this spectacular building in which the exhibits start off in the basement, hewed out of the rock, and go on and on as you rise through the bright upper floors. The Museum's collections bear witness to the industrial, handicraft and commercial heritage of the capital. The musuem's panoramic lift is a fascinating example of the successful adaptation of an old building to the expectations of modern-day museum visitors. The glass cage of the lift passes through the entire height of the museum. The cage is a room in itself, with a surface area of 18 sqm, and can hold up to 65 people. Thanks to its transparent walls and reduced pace, the public is able to admire the rock foundations visible on the lower levels and the panoramic view of the Grund district and Rham plateau on the upper levels. The lift travels through more than thousand years of history in a few minutes, showing the urban stratification of the city of Luxembourg throughout the centuries.
