The Lëtzebuerg City Museum brings more than 1,000 years of the city’s history to life. "The Luxembourg Story" exhibition is particulary well worth seeing. In addition to numerous exhibits – from photographs to statues, to old cash registers and gloves made of leather tanned in the Luxembourg-Grund quarter – digital and multimedia kiosks also tell the city’s exciting history. An especially interesting part of the museum this year is the Unesco Visitor Center. This is the place to immerse oneself in Unesco world heritage history, its significance and distinctive features. Kiosks, some of them interactive, display the historic Old City and fortifications. If you look out of the window you can compare the models and drawings directly with reality.
The National Museum of History and Art – MNHA provides a "historical sweep" of archaeological finds on Luxembourg territory from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, via the Gallo-Roman era to the Middle Ages. A historical and visual highlight is the enormous mosaic from the Roman villa of Vichten, built around 240 A.D. And just how creative are the Grand Duchy’s craftsmen? Aficionados of beautiful things will for example discover art deco treasures from the Villeroy & Boch ceramics factory and furniture from indigenous craft workshops. A Benz Velo, belonging to the industrialist Paul Wurth, is the first vehicle licensed in Luxembourg back in 1895. And just how seductive a gaze Mrs. Condé Nast or silent film star Pola Negri were able to muster for the camera at the dawn of the 20th century has been captured by Edward Steichen – on display in the contemporary art galleries.
