Great place to learn about the evolution of art

Architectural and art artifacts from 1000 to 1500's arranged in chronological order. Great way to learn art history and seeing how styles evolved.

The attraction is the art, especially the stained glass for which Strasbourg was widely known in the Middle Ages but the building itself is also interesting. Don't miss the small walled garden just off the Rue du Maroquin--it's only accessible from the museum. The audio guides are a must.

Incredible church with lots of history and we were lucky to attend services on sunday. People dont realize how grandious the Notre Dame church in Strasburg is and all the history around it

You need to really take it in and get a feel of what it took to build such a masterpiece 1,000 years ago. No technology, no machinery, just simple human will.

This fine little museum covers the history of the Cathedral and those who lived in it -- cardinals, Archbishops etc. ,---and should be enjoyed ( IMHO ) after a visit to the Cathedral itself. It gave me a better perspective of the exhibits and how they related to the Cathedral itself. Covers a long time span -- hence it is... More

Built inside 3 interlinked medieval and Renaissance houses, this little-heralded museum contains the finest art in the city. Better yet, you see it from inside the fascinating buildings (spiral stone staircases, hidden courtyards, carved wooden ceilings so low you could touch them) of medieval Strasbourg. The marquee attraction is the flamingly anti-Jewish pair of statues of the church triumphant and... More

A good rainy day excursion in Strasbourg. There are 3 other museums close by, so you could spend a half day between them all, plus the cathedral opposite.

A glorious structure and a must see for Strasbourg. For five euro you can climb your way to the roof. I didn't but did purchase a CD of the organ. Be careful not to stand too close to the structures in the square that often support resting pigeons with full colons. If you aren't mindful of their presence a very... More

Well organised and a fascinating history of the cathedral, with hundreds of original Cathedral artefacts. They have been replaced by sandstone replicas for protection from the elements. Well laid out, and not busy - even on the free entry Sunday
