  • It certainly isn't a memorable Museum. However there are many interesting works, including a collection of Gustave Dore, a nice set of Arp's sculptures and some works of Kandinsky. In addition, a true gem of Signac. Considering the price very low input (/euro), the neighboring parking and a nice and bright architecture, if you have time it is well worth a visit.

  • Beautiful, beautiful works of art to discover: sculptures, paintings, massages... with children under 3. To discover.

  • Collection as well as temporary exhibitions have liked us very well - some works are, of course, a matter of taste, but for art lovers, the Museum most definitely is a good choice and three hours are spent quickly. Unfortunately, there is no audio guides. Affordable entry (EUR 7,-) with discounts for seniors over 60 years and students etc. Well run café with a fantastic outdoor terrace (in summer determines very nice there great views of Strasbourg Cathedral and Petit France). Recommended!
