Free admission at Luxembourg center

The Luxembourg American Cultural Society will offering free museum admission during the first week of February for residents of Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Washington counties.

The museum, which opened in 2009, is housed in the Mamer-Hansen Luxembourgian stone barn, which was built in 1872 by Luxembourg immigrant Jacob Mamer. The barn was dismantled and moved from its original location in the Town of Port Washington in 2005, then rebuilt to house the museum at 100 Peter Thein Ave. in Belgium.

  Its exhibit panels, display cases, furnishings and artwork were gifts from the people of Luxembourg through the country’s Ministry of Culture and were crafted by Luxembourgish artisans.

  The center’s unique Roots & Leaves Museum is filled with facts about Luxembourg, the world’s only Grand Duchy.

The center is also home to the J. B. Krier Wellkomm Centre, featuring the Luxembourg American Family Tree, a sculpture created in Luxembourg.

The Dooley-Wagner Research Center is the largest research center for Luxembourg studies and genealogy outside of Luxembourg.

The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, through Saturday, Feb. 4. Proof of residency is required for free admission.
