CITYMUSEUM boshua 20170705_086

Discover the entire 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.

Villa Vauban – Musée d’Art

18, avenue Émile Reuter

L-2420 Luxembourg

villavauban.lu

ViVa C Aschman 2013 - copie

The museum was designed to reflect the specificity of its collection of paintings originally acquired by wealthy private collectors in the 18th and 19th century. Its core structure, an urban villa from 1873, was redeveloped under the supervision of architect Philippe Schmit of the Luxembourg-based office Diane Heirend & Philippe Schmit architectes, whose contemporary extension engages in a stimulating architectural dialogue with the historic building. The Villa Vauban owes its name to a fort of the former Luxembourg fortress built by the fortress architect of Louis XIV, Sébastien Le Prestre Vauban (1633–1707) which served as the foundation of the later residence. Today an impressive part of the fortress wall of the 18th century can be admired in the basement of the museum. The museum complex is located in a park designed by the French architect Édouard André (1840–1911), one of the leading landscape planners of his time. Extensive refurbishment works will recover the park's original design, thus allowing visitors to explore historic works of art in a quiet and relaxing setting in the heart of the city.
