Villa Vauban, City of Luxembourg Art museum

Villa Vauban is home to the Luxembourg City Museum of Art. The old collections of works of art presented in this 19th century mansion, were collected by wealthy private families in the 18th and 19th century, Jean-Pierre Pescatore, Leo Lippmann and Eugenie Dutreux-Pescatore. You will also find in the museum collections of works by Luxembourgish artists from the 19th and 20th century, paintings and sculptures.

Located in the beautiful Municipal Park of Luxembourg., the Villa which was renovated and enlarged by a contemporary extension in 2010, allows you to discover paintings, sculptures and engravings of European artists from the 17th to the 19th century in a favorable environment to relax, in the heart of the city. At the end of the visit, take the opportunity to stroll through this park and take your children to the pirate ship!

Villa Vauban also housed the European Court of Justice from 1952 to 1958 and hosted the residence of the Grand Ducal family from 1992 to 1995 because of the work undertaken in the Grand Ducal Palace.
