Musée de l’Œuvre Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame Artwork Museum), Strasbourg

Musée de l’Œuvre Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame Artwork Museum), Strasbourg (must see)

Notre-Dame Artwork Museum is housed in the Gothic/Renaissance building of the Foundation of Notre-Dame Artwork and in the early Baroque buildings around it on the Place du Chateau, next to the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

The museum displays Upper Rhenish fine and decorative arts from the early Middle Ages to 1681. The collection consists of original sculptures and architectural pieces damaged during the French Revolution, as well as stained glass windows by Peter Hemmel von Andlau, paintings by Hans Baldung, Sebastien Strokopff and Konrad Witz.

The collection also boasts valuable components from other Strasbourg churches, such as the Temple Neuf, destroyed in 1870, the Saint-Pierre-le-Vieux Church, renovated in 1867, and the Sainte-Madeleine Church, destroyed by fire in 1904. In addition, the Romanesque components (cloister, baptismal font) from St. Trophimus' Church, Eschau and the stained glass windows from St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, Wissembourg and Mutzig are also worth seeing.

There's an audio-guide available, free and well worth getting for all the information it gives. Don't miss the medieval garden but be warned that it's closed in bad weather, including thundershowers.

Opening Hours: Tue-Sun: 10am-6pm
