The Musée Unterlinden is closed
In accordance with directives issued by the French government , the muesum closed its doors from the 14th March 2020 for a unspecified duration. Thank you for your comprehension.
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 encyclopaedic 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.
