  • This is probably one of my favourite galleries in France. It has a stunning collection of modern art and quite a bit of old stuff to. The Kandinsky was the highlight for me.  more »

  • I buy groceries here every day and I like the place. Veggies could be occasionally a bit fresher, but the personnel is nice, so all around it's good for small grocery shopping.
  • Take your time and feel the art to take you at a brand-new experience of you inside of MAMCs. They don't speak English and neither the art infos are in english.
  • Art students get free entrance. Very amazing collection including Kandinsky. Jean arp, monet, Ernst etc, there is also an exposition dedicated to strasbourg-born artist Gustave Doré They have a very strange door though lol it's like a space you go in and you have to push a button to open the other side
  • Beautiful museum, lots of famous artists and arts, we made a quick tour of the place and it was lovely
  • My favorite museum and place to visit in Strasbourg. Always great temporary exhibits. The rooftop café is recommended for great views of Strasbourg including la Petite France, the Cathédrale and the Pont Vauban.

Where to stay in Strasbourg

La Petite France is by far the choice district for a bed and breakfast. For a longer stay, consider the Grand Île district, just north of La Petite France, where all the major architectural sites and museums are located.
