On our annual trip to Milwaukee, we were driving along I-43 and saw a sign for this museum. We were intrigued about Luxembourg culture, so we decided to stop. The museum is small, but very surprisingly very interesting. The displays had a lot of information about the history of Luxembourg settlers in that part of Ozaukee County. I'm from Wisconsin and didn't know much about this, and learned a lot in this visit. Sadly, due to Covid, the interactive displays were not available, but we still enjoyed our visit. The staff was very nice and friendly and answered all our questions. We learned about Luxembourg Days, a festival in the town of Belgium, and hopefully we'll come back to Wisconsin in 2021 to attend.

Went to the museum to see if we could find out more about our ancestors. The museum was well done. Very good reading material! I wouldn't listen to the hand held tour as it doesn't correspond with the museum itself. Took a good two hours to read most of the material. It was very interesting. Then we went to the research area. Was not able to find anything relating to our family. Not sure if there is much there. Was no one around to help you out. Went to the front desk and asked a few questions, but apparently items that are archived can not be looked at by the patrons. Not sure how you can do research then? Anyway they have an extensive collection of photos that you are not able to access. Also looked up some of our relatives and everyone that I looked up said that they were missing from the collection. Must have people stealing the information. That is too bad. Was hoping that this was going to be a more fruitful visit but still is a very nice museum.

So why would we go to this obscure museum in the small town of Belgium Wisconsin? When your wife's family is originally from Luxembourg! She had been wanting to visit this place on previous trips back to the Midwest but we just never found the time to do so! Their hours are unusual so check first before venturing there! When we arrived we were greeted by a modern building attached to a nicely restored stone barn. We paid the $9 fee which included an audio headset. The staff was beyond friendly. We entered the small museum and were immediately impressed at how well curated it was. We all walked away having learned a lot about those who immigrated from Luxembourg to the US and about Luxembourg itself. The only gripe was that the audio program did not coordinate well with the displays. After awhile I gave up and just read the displays since they were so good. This museum is extremely well done.

The museum certainly provides people with a bit of an insight to Luxembourg and the people who left Luxembourg in the 18 hundreds. Information on the recent political situation in Luxembourg should be updated. If you want to do research on ancestors, there are people available who will assist you.
