History of Museum Nights Luxembourg
Created in 2001 by the “d’stater muséeën” movement, the Night of the Museums has since become a key event in the cultural life of the City of Luxembourg. Each year, the public is more numerous to take part in the various animations: guided tours created specifically for the occasion, workshops for children or adults. The atmosphere is also particularly festive with the presence of DJs and gourmets for musical and gastronomic animations.
