The National Resistance Museum was opened in 1956 on the initiative of the Luxembourg League of Political Prisoners and Deportees. It is a passionate tribute to all victims of Nazism.

You can discover a permanent exhibition showing the daily life of the inhabitants who resisted Nazi oppression from 1940 to 1945. The museum tells the story of the Jewish population in Luxembourg, and its mission is to perpetuate the memory of these events.

It also hosts numerous temporary and traveling exhibitions. They allow visitors to understand the war from often new angles and according to sometimes unknown themes.

More than just a museum, this location allows you to pay tribute to those who lost their lives for freedom.
