This a museum located in an old palace, near the cathedral. It is worth a visit given the nice collection of old masters. more »
An impressive collection of art from the Renaissance to the late 19th century. Well displayed, well lit and spacious. Ask for a free audio guide at the entrance. It's not very clear where the entrance is - essentially this is the first floor of the building. If you are short of time, this is more interesting than the Museum of Decorative Art on the ground floor.
A most wonderful collection of art housed on a magnificent historical building. Treasures of Alsatian and French history.
