  • take time to see this museum when in Strasbourg. The collection is very interesting, and you may see a couple of pieces you recognize. Just take your time and take it in.

  • It’s on the first floor of the Palais de Rohan, the old episcopal palace. There was an exhibition by Jean Jaques Henner, an Alsatian painter, which was a mix of portraits and nudes. I quite enjoyed his style. However, the permanent collection (mostly renaissance art) was a let down. It’s good to spend an hour or so when the weather is too cold, but don’t get your hopes high.
  • The Museum of Fine Arts in Strasbourg has one of the finest collections of European art spanning from the 14th century to the early 19th century. Regarded as one of the best museums in Europe, the gallery has been located on the first and second floor of Rohan Palace since 1898 and owns about 865 works, of which 250 are on display at any one time.
