  • Villa Vauban is an art museum housed in a former private mansion built in 1873 and now in the middle of the Luxembourg City Park. The name owes to the fort built by Vauban, which once stood in this place. An impressive fragment of the old fortress wall can be seen in the basement of the museum. The exhibition in the museum consists of three collections gathered from private individuals combining Dutch painting from the 17TH century and French historical and landscape art. It also contains paintings, sculptures and prints of European artists from the 17TH to the 19TH century. The museum is open every day except on Tuesdays from 10.00 to 18.00 and Friday from 10.00 to 21.00. The reverse ticket costs 5 euros.

  • The villa is very beautiful and the garden around it also. Here are organised many free exhibitions of art and modern photography. Inside there is a very nice spot (with huge pillows) for reading with the kids. It's nice to visit it for a relaxing evening but it is not something spectacular to do.
  • A very nice and small art museum situated in an ancient villa in the Luxembourg city central park. The museum presents a permanent (changing) old masters' exhibition and a changing thematic one. There are also activities for kids and in the summer outdoor activities in the evenings. Absolutely worth a visit. Check the evening free entry schedule.
