The tiny landlocked European country of Luxembourg is home to several astounding contemporary art galleries, from underground exhibition spaces located in secret tunnels to custom-built architectural splendors. Here are ten unmissable contemporary art museums, galleries and exhibition spaces to visit in Luxembourg.
A private gallery dedicated to providing a stage for young, talented European artists, Artium has hosted more than 300 exhibitions since it first opened its doors to the public in 1978. The owners of the gallery go in search of new talent at art fairs, studios and academies around Europe and have so far worked with artists from 16 different countries. The art on show tends to be innovative and conceptual but Artium is always open to other genres and cross-genre experimentation. To see sculptures, multiples, photographs and digital art created by artists at the very beginning of their careers, this is the gallery to go to in Luxembourg.

A lesser-known gallery but one that’s equally worth a visit nonetheless, Galerie d’Art Maggy Stein specializes in hosting temporary thematic exhibitions. Expect to see an eclectic array of incredible sculptures, installations, paintings, graphic art and fine art as you wander around the gallery. One of its most popular exhibitions in the past would be the display of much-loved fine art specialist Rom Lammar. Locally born, Lammar is known throughout the Luxembourg art circle for his exquisite mixed media abstractions and expressionist acrylic paintings
