The exhibitions currently staged at the Lëtzebuerg City Museum will be reopening to visitors, the first being The Luxembourg Story – a journey of discovery through over 1,000 years of Luxembourg’s history. The 2 Musées de la Ville de Luxembourg also ask the population to contribute to the collection of objects on the theme of COVID-19. Hence, an online form to safely exchange with the museums team is available (www.citymuseum.lu/collection). The Schwaarz Konscht exhibition also has a historical dimension, showcasing the firebacks and stove plates that served as ornamental objects from the 16th to 19th centuries and offering an insight into the mindsets and material life of days gone by. The 3rd floor of the museum, meanwhile, plays host to UNESCO – Visitor Center, allowing visitors to explore the most important aspects of world heritage, namely the Old Town and the fortress.
The Variations exhibition at the Villa Vauban, for its part, showcases some 70 paintings, sculptures, engravings and drawings from the 17th to 21st centuries, including a number of new acquisitions. Last but not least, a second exhibition devoted to the works of Charles Kohl retraces the key periods that marked the artistic career of this eminent Luxembourg-born sculptor, showcasing a series of the artist’s sculptures and drawings.
