  • I take it its worth the visit but will never know as all three galleries and city museums were closed due to strike action. The very reason I don't use CDG or Paris Orly when flying into the EU.  more »
  • interesting art not exactly to my taste but I wanted a different experience. Some left me scratching. my head trying to figure out what it represented. In the eye of the beholder  more »
  • This is for a special branch of the museum segment of the population. Works by Hans Jean Arp are in the collection. Some others too that deserved my attention. A small art museum that needs to improve...  more »

  • 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.
  • I'm so impressed by the collections here. Must see!
  • First art gallery I visited in Europe. It was interesting.
  • Best museum in town, if you like modern art
  • Great collections. Only problem is that most of the descriptions of the artwork is in French. If you don't speak French, it's better that you have 3G on your phone so you can search things up when you don't understand. This facility doesn't have Wi-Fi.
