Permanent exhibition

Free admission



The Musée du Jeu de Cartes is dedicated to Jean Dieudonné, founder of a dynasty of card makers who settled in Grevenmacher in 1754.


The products of the Dieudonné factory were mainly destined for the foreign market, with Luxembourg's tax advantages creating a favourable context for this flourishing craft.


The history of the factory is closely linked to the political changes that have marked its existence. Following the French Revolution and the annexation of Luxembourg in 1795, it was forbidden to depict crowned heads on playing cards, and when the French government introduced a tax on card games in 1797, it took all the commercial intelligence of the Dieudonné family to ensure the company's survival. The Dutch government that succeeded the French abolished the tax, and it was not until much later, in 1905, that the Luxembourg government decided to reintroduce it, by which time the Dieudonné factories had already ceased to exist.
