If you are new to Luxembourg or have not yet had the chance to visit the the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean or Mudam for short, here’s some happy news for you.
Every Wednesday night, from 6pm to 11pm, Luxembourg’s modern art museum opens its doors to the public for a free after-work event in one of the coutry’s most unconventional settings.
Dubbed ”Up to Eleven”, which was inspired from the film ”This is Spinal Tap (1984) by Rob Reiner where ”up to eleven” means ”to the extreme limit”, the name of the event series also hints to its extended opening hours on the day.
While free admission starts at 6pm and allows participants to walk freely around the museum’s galleries, for those who want to learn more about the artwork displayed, Mudam proposes a free guided tour of its collections at 7pm.
With galleries being open until 9pm, the museum also offers catering services at its cosy cafeteria where live music is regularly played.
Spending Wednesday nights at Mudam is a great opportunity to visit the museum’s latest collections, have a few drinks with your colleagues and friends and of course to celembrate the hump day. Not to mention again the free admission, which would otherwise, and on any other day, cost you 8 euros as an adult or 5 euros if you are are a non-student under 26 or visiting with a group.
According to its website www.mudam.lu, every Wednesday Mudam presents nocturnal events which are all about the art of relaxing in an exceptional setting.
Opened in 2006 Mudam Luxembourg is housed in a purpose-built building designed by the renowned Sino-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei and located in the Park Draï Eechelen, overlooking the historic city of Luxembourg.
The Mudam hosts the most important collection of contemporary art in Luxembourg, consisting of neraly 700 works of art in all media by artists from Luxembourg and around the world.
