The Modern Art Museum in Luxembourg, better known as MUDAM, is the top contemporary art museum in Luxembourg. Housed in a building designed by a Chinese-American architect, the museum is spread over three levels and 4500 square meters of display space. In an interesting contrast, the building was built onto the rampart walls of the old Fort Thungen, which dates back to 1732. The museum features a wide array of contemporary art, including photography, paintings, drawings, sculptures, graphic design, fashion and new media. It bills itself as a place for reflection and contemplation and encourages visitors to set aside any prejudices and view the art with a new look and complete freedom.
The museum is set in the Parc Drai Eechelen, which features several works of art and offers nice views of the old town.
The Modern Art Museum Luxembourg is accessible by bus 1 or 16 to the Philharmonie/Mudam stop. The museum offers free wi-fi and has a mobile app that can be downloaded free of charge. The app provides an in-depth introduction to building’s architecture and a virtual visit of the Parc Drai Eechelen. Visitors can also scan QR codes next to the works on display to learn more.
