The museum traces the history of Luxembourg between 1940 and 1945, under the Nazi oppression, through the reactions of the people (passive resistance, resistance movements, forced enrolment, strike, refractory, Luxemburger in the maquis and in the Allied forces ) until liberation, by photos, objects and works of art. Different rooms deal with the Nazi repression and the concentration camp system, as well as the fate of the Jews of Luxembourg.

The museum is a member of the Mulux Network and ICOM Luxembourg.
