After hosting a hospital and a women prison, the building, which dates back to 1308, is at present home to the National Museum of Natural History of Luxembourg. The museum is deemed a window to the natural beauties of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and visitors can admire pictures depicting various seasonal landscapes.
Visits to this museum become interactive trips shuttling tourists 15 million years ago, the moment when our planet was born, and then bring them back to present, displaying the environment-related issues we all face today.
Permanent exhibitions gravitate around several questions: “Who am I?”, a question linked to the impact the entire humanity, as well as each of us, has on the planet; “Where am I?”, an itinerary in the Luxembourgian landscape; and “Where do I come from?”, which is an exploration trip into the Universe and the planet.
The Grand Ducal Palace of Luxembourg is one of the most important historic edifices in the Duchy due to its past and present political significance.
Luxembourg Tour by Bus offers the chance to visit the Old City, casemates ruins. Tourists can admire the architecture of the buildings in Luxembourg.
The Pétrusse Casemates are too a tourist site of special historic charge. It was no sooner than 1933 that their tourist potential was discovered.
