The collection of Museum Unterlinden

A visit to the Musée Unterlinden covers nearly 7,000 years of history, from the prehistoric era to 20th century art. Whilst travelling in time amidst the museum’s encyclop aedic collections, visitors can also discover the multiple facets  of its architecture, which have been unified and enhanced by the architects Herzog & de Meuron. The Medieval cloister presents the art of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, with works by the likes of Martin Schongauer, Hans Holbein and Lucas Cranach, as well as the museum’s great masterpiece, the Isenheim Altarpiece (1512–1516) by Grünewald and Niclaus of Haguenau.  The former baths building inaugurated in 1906 provides a perfect space for temporary events, whilst the works  of major 20th century artists such as Monet, de Staël,  Picasso and Dubuffet have a new showcase in the  contemporary wing.
