Situated on the Rue du Saint- Esprit, right in the heart of the old part of the city, the Luxembourg City History Museum opened its doors in 1996. It displays permanent collections as well as temporary exhibitions that in a very innovative way illustrate the history, spanning more than a thousand years, of the capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
The museum consists of two parts: the floors below the entrance level (Rue du Saint-Esprit) illustrate the city's evolution from an economic, social, political, architectural and town planning point of view, whereas the upper levels are reserved for temporary exhibitions.
Works of contemporary artists line the tour. You can for instance discover the work Swing by Su-Mei Tse.
Space is also reserved for temporary exhibitions (1st floor, rooms 18 and 19), which highlight the museum's collections.
