Trip Planner: Europe / Luxembourg / Luxembourg District / Luxembourg City / National Museum of Natural History
A natural history museum with interactive displays, National Museum of Natural History has a few floors of exhibits that are geared toward families. On the first floor, taxidermied animals are arranged in displays built to look like the animal's natural habitats. The upper floors continue with exhibits on minerals, forests, and insects, each featuring a section that can be touched. Your final stop in the museum will be the gift shop and cafe, furnished with chairs and tables designed to look like trees in the forest.

If you have kids - go there. If you don’t - still go there! For only €5 each there is lots to see. Huge range of cool stuffed animals and lots to learn about the world we live in. Enjoy :)

Nice and well kept museum. Went with a 3 year old and they liked it though I think it’s more interesting for older kids (7+). Some things to consider; - no touching the exhibits (hard to control with small kids) - closest parking area quite small this usually full and therefore have to park up and walk down into the valley where the building is - plan accordingly with prams etc - it’s in the historical area (Grund) so can combine it with a nice walk through there - nice restaurants and bars around the area
An amazing museum to have fun even with 3 y.o. child 😍 Please note that it's not allowed to touch the items, so it's better to negotiate about it with your toddler in advance 😅 We counted wolves, butterflies, t-rex teeth, etc, found some rare animals like pangolin (my son haven't seen them before) and watched a short film about asteroids (it was indeed impressive!). For sure older kids will benefit and entertain much more in this museum than 3 y.o., but even for very small kids it's fun. Museum staff is super-friendly. Thank you!
