The missions of the museum:
  • Collect, preserve, document, exhibit and transmit continuously the cultural (tangible and intangible) heritage of the City of Luxembourg from the 10th century to the present, by situating it in a national, regional and European context.
  • Treat socio-cultural subjects in a historical perspective by organising exhibitions and educational and cultural programmes that meet the current concerns of the different visitors.
  • Help to develop the cultural identity of the capital and to strengthen its role as a pole of attraction in the region, thereby assuming a role as a protagonist for the sustainable development of the city by serving as a forum for an open discussion on the urban heritage and society issues.
