The Family of Man Guided Tours

"The Family of Man" is one of the most viewed photo exhibitions of all time: 10 million people have visited it since the 1950's. It was created in 1955 by Edward Steichen for the Museum of Modern Art in New York and then traveled around the world. Today the exhibition is registered on the UNESCO Memory of the world list and is located in the renovated Clervaux Castle.The exhibition was conceived by Edward Steichen as a series of snapshots and emotions that aimed to convey a message of peace in times of the Cold War.

I and my friends, we spent a very nice time on Sunday afternoon there. We decided to take a guided tour which was very professional and informative, the story line was interesting and involves you so much! I highly recommend to experience this. It is super easy to book tickets online, find the place. The connection with Clervaux is good.

What an amazing exposition.It really is worth a trip from Holland/Belgium to Luxembourg. The gide did a very good job leading us through the story behind the photo's, the collector and the time in where it was exposed first. I would really recommend this offer to my friends!

The exhibition itself was so incredible and touching! We had booked a guided tour per accident but I was glad, because we wouldn‘t have understood the photos on the same level if we would have gone through by ourselves. I would come back if it weren‘t so far. Totally recommend!
