Highly recommend this visit. Don't know if it was because of the national holiday but it was very peaceful in the garden.

Great way of inmersing in Luxembourg's recent history
Jun 2016 • Solo
The museum of the Resistence is an inmportant monument for the City of Esch-sur-Alzette, the second largest city in Luxembourg and bordering France. The museum is free and there is a permanent exhibition of a very important part of Luxemburgish history during Second World War. Luxembourg's resistance to the German armed forces can not be neglected. Although the exhibit was a bit old, it is worth visiting to understand better this part of Europe if you are not from this region, like me. Not advised to come with children, it's a bit too somber but also children, even preyouth would not appreciate or understand yet the meaning of this. if you are into history, give it a try, you will enjoy this museum. I know i did!

Visitors must see this museum. People with a four year degree in history shouldn't avoid this. Serious business!

Many years ago - long before the range of calendar dates included in this review - I was exploring Luxembourg for the first time. Almost by chance I took the train to this town and walked around until I discovered this museum. I spent one or two hours there with a second visit later in the day just because I was moved by the content of the museum. It is easy to overlook this small county. I was curious to know about this part of Luxembourg and so I decided to visit the town and went away impressed by the geographical location of the city along the river. I walked through the downtown or central part or section and came across this museum and I went inside. Well worth my time to visit this place and ask questions. Helpful staff welcomed me and asked me why I was in their town. That gave me a chance I needed to put my thoughts together. That for me was not an easy question to answer. If you need a reason to study the history of this country here it is. Dividends for getting that degree in European history are in abundance here and should not be minimized. Examine the exterior of the building. Visit city hall and adjacent buildings. I would agree that in today's world there is the tendency to forget about these things. But do not consider this as a place worthy of visiting just to get out of the rain because in 1944 and 1945 there was greater peril for the people living here. Interior decor was rough and rustic with wood and not altogether polished. Go see the town from the balcony and walk up the metal staircase inside. It was like a ware house. But do not allow the appearance of the interior distract you from appreciating the real reason this museum is open for you and others to visit. I do not remember sizing up the collection but it was not altogether old fashioned. I really liked it. Remember this visit took place many years ago when I was a much younger man. I had discovered tasty coffee ice-cream two days earlier in Luxembourg City. In this museum artifacts should be viewed and the descriptions read. Pay attention to the photos and please remember that the battle of the Bulge took place not too far away. In fact it engulfed most parts of this small country in one way or another. For me it was necessary to walk through the central part of the city. I walked up a hill or two and came across a place where people were playing tennis. A view of more bucolic Luxembourg. I spent one half hour watching people play tennis - not the same as eating coffee ice cream - before returning to the central part of this city on foot. This visit gave me more knowledge of the geographical location of the place. The visit to the museum gave me reason to visit similar places in other places that same year. What an introduction to visiting Dachau later! Most interesting story of the resistance movement. You are close to the French border. History students with a 4 year college degree in that discipline need to visit this museum. Building itself might be an architectural monument of some sort - I am not sure. But I did ask myself these questions when I was there. But it is the collection inside that counts more. Bring somebody to talk with while visiting the collection for this museum is not a place to casually and quickly visit just before running off to buy a milkshake at McDonald's. Some contemplation is needed. If you need a reason to avoid sunbathing on the beaches of the Mediterranean here it is. This is serious business. I would not take my class of fourteen year olds to visit this museum unless they were ready to understand the importance of this place. At that time admission was free as I recall now. Also of importance the snack bar - concession stand atmosphere did not dominate the place. You did not go to this museum to buy a ham sandwich. That was another time. I do believe that the exhibit was permanent and gave more than just a glimpse of the country's struggle to survive during the Second World War. Get your hands on the reading material and read it. I do recommend visiting it. Again as I said before this visit took place many years ago but it should be repeated again today.

Interesting Story of the Resistance Movement
Sep 2015 • Couples
Spent an hour and half here following the story of the Luxembourgish resistance during World War II. Moving photos and vivid written descriptions are numerous. Many artifacts also accompany the photos and descriptions in glass cases, etc. All this in presented in a warehouse sort of décor with rough wood boards, metal staircases and balcony. The building itself is monumental and beautiful as it sits at the edge of the Place de la Resistance square.

worth a visit

Permanent exhibition about Luxembourg during the last world war. Very informative. You discover things that are forgotten even by Luxembourgish. The exhibition is rather old fashioned, due to lack of funding supposedly. Still worth a visit though.
