Many of the original sculptures on the cathedral have been removed (and replaced by copies) to prevent damage from weather. The originals are in the museum an can be viewed up close. The docents are extremely helpful and excited about their collection of church treasures. Do not miss the opportunity the view the architectural drawings for the cathedral.

beautiful building, interesting objects, doorways, windows, wall coverings, ceilings and furniture placed to give context. Nice to be so close to carved stone normally seen at great distances on top of cathedrals. The architecture exposition - of how the Notre dame de Strasbourg was but - is extraordinarily interesting. Unfortunately there is no documentation that we could buy to take... More

This is a great museum, but the experience is greatly improved by the audio guide. It gives so much more information than what you'd otherwise get, presented clearly and easy to follow. Highly recommended.

Not quite what we were expecting. Not much at all in English. Some lovely rooms. Plenty of stuff that use to belong in the cathedral opposite. The lady at the desk thought we would be 90 minutes. We did 30 minutes. Took some nice pictures, but unless you really adore the subject matter, go the the actual cathedral and climb... More

Very interesting to see the treasures of medieval Strasbourg, especially those relating to the cathedral. There was a lot of information regarding the restoration and the preservation of pieces coming from the cathedral, but other pieces don't have any information other than the name of the artist, the title and possible date. Would've been nice to learn more about them... More

The medieval museum next to the cathedral was excellent value for money, with theme of walking through the ages beginning in the medical era and heading through the Renaissance and beyond, exhibits included stone carvings, stained glass, paintings and even beautifully carved wardrobes. An additional pleasure was the architectural drawing of the cathedral with 3D renderings and video. Well worth... More

This visit for us was a placeholder in our time in Strasbourg. It is worth visiting but not lingering-focus on items of interest and keep moving unless you are a student of the Cathedral. I thought the Musee Alsacien was more interesting. It does have striking works of art - Christ's Head in stained glass from Wissembourg; the painting "Deceased... More

It's a sacred art Museum with art crafts which come from the Cathedral. The visitor can see the Cathedral's live history in an old building with many rooms on different floors, located very close to the temple. Stained Glasses, sculptures, statues and other art crafts make the big picture.

Great history of the Cathedral here, including plans and descriptions on how the church was built. A bit of stair climbing here, but worth the visit.
