On Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May 2016, museums in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg are going to open their doors for guided tours, workshops, performances, meetings with artists, conferences, concerts, tastings and animation for kids. Organised for the 19th time by the 'd'stater muséeën'-group (museums of the City of Luxembourg), this year's 'Invitation to museums' is open to the whole country for the 7th time. 44 museums associated themselves and will open their doors to the public.
From Echternach to Rumelange, via Bech-Kleinmacher and Diekirch, discover the diversity of Luxembourg's museums and their programmes brimming with activities for the whole family. As in recent years, access to the different museums is completely free.
Enjoy a privileged access to museums
The open days are a time of privileged access to this exceptional museum heritage, enabling visitors to enjoy the rich and eclectic cultural offer. Seize the opportunity to roam the country and discover the museums, thus learning more about the history and heritage of your region. Visit permanent exhibitions of national and municipal museums, as well as the many temporary exhibitions which lead you through art history and archaeology, natural sciences, steelworking and past traditions and customs.
Discover the links between past and present, explore the secrets of nature and meet internationally renowned artists. Every museum offers a rich cultural programme for the whole family, complete with guided tours, workshops, performances, meetings with artists, conferences, tastings and animation for children. A cultural mediation effort aims at sensitising the public and at initiating the latter to a cultural practice.
