This museum, located in excellently restored buildings from the era, illustrates the art of the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and the beginnings of the Reformation, making it a perfect stop for fans of ecclesiastic art and medieval history. The collection displays many pieces that were previously displayed in the cathedral (where copies have since been substituted). The most celebrated is a stained-glass head of Christ from about the 11th century. Other noteworthy works are the 13th-century sculpture hall with the wise and foolish virgins from 1280, the winding Renaissance staircase, and 16th- and 17th-century artifacts by Strasbourg goldsmiths.
