Located at the Cathedral's base, the oeuvre Notre-Dame Museum takes visitors on a journey of discovery through seven centuries of art from Strasbourg and the region of the Upper Rhine.


  • Take a look at the exhibits arranged in the order that corresponds to the architectural setting of the museum for a complete rundown:

The vast bulk of the items in the collection was created between the early middle ages and 1681. This collection includes sculptures, glass windows, architectural pieces, and designs for the Strasbourg Cathedral. Each of these elements of art is separated into one of four distinct categories of art based on the subject matter they explore.

  • Pay close attention to the works of art that correspond to the following periods:

The city's glorious history is preserved in the form of extensive collections of medieval and Renaissance art. It was one of the most important centers of creative production in the Holy Roman Empire from the 13th to the 16th centuries.

Explore the museum's collections and rooms to find out more about the sculptures created by master craftsman Nikolaus Gerhart von Leyden, the paintings created by Conrad Witz, Hans Baldung Green, or the still life expert Sébastien Stoskopff, the stained glass windows created by Peter Hemmel von Andlau, and other works of art.

The oeuvre Notre-Dame Museum is home to some remarkable examples of Alsatian art spanning from the Romanesque period until 1681.

  • Pay extra close attention to the priceless items that were previously kept in the church's collection:

The Strasbourg Cathedral is home to some of the world's most impressive works of sculpture, many of which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries and are considered among the finest examples of their respective art forms.

Many of the artifacts currently on display in the collection were originally housed in the Cathedral's collection (where copies have since been substituted).

The most well-known of these is a head of Christ fashioned out of stained glass and dating back to some time around the 11th century.

Other significant structures are the wise and stupid virgins from 1280, the winding Renaissance staircase, and antiques manufactured by goldsmiths in Strasbourg from the 16th and 17th centuries. All of these structures may be found in Strasbourg.

  • Embrace the beauty of old-world charm in all facets here:

Behind the old gables of Maison is a fantastic interior design, a delightful tiny Gothic garden, and cool courtyards, all of which combine to give guests a particular impression of Strasbourg's past.

The museum's collection includes, amongst other things, fragments of the buildings that once served as churches in the city.
