  • Nice to visit, interesting temporary exhibitions but the openings a bit stingy. Buren work on the structure is more attractive seen from the inside when there is sunlight. From the outside, I find that it just doesn't fit in this neighborhood.

  • Visit to understand in an interesting way, so rich and eventful this city history that at all time aroused the lusts. Duration of the visit with audio guide, about 2:30. The 1, 2 or 3 day pass is worth taking, because thus we can have unlimited access to all exhibitions and museums of the city which allows to better organize themselves and be able to enjoy. It is reasonably priced and is amortized quickly if you like cultural visits (and Strasborug is a rich and vibrant cultural city).
