On 12 October 2019, the Musées de la Ville de Luxembourg opened their doors to the public for a rather special evening: the “Nuit des Musées”. This year more than 23,500 visitors took the chance to enjoy this traditional Museum Night on the theme: “Museums – be moved”.
For this 19th edition, Luxembourg sportsmen, improvised guides, presented to the public a “coup de coeur” work in each of the 7 participating museums.

Created in 2001 by the “stater muséeën” movement, the Nuit des Musées has since then become an essential event in the cultural life of the City of Luxembourg. Each year, the public is more and more numerous to participate in the various activities: guided tours created specifically for the occasion, workshops for children or adults. The atmosphere is also particularly festive with the presence of DJs and delicacies for musical and gastronomic animation.
