Maison de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame, Strasbourg, France

Situated at the foot of the Cathedral, the Œuvre Notre-Dame Museum offers a journey of discovery through seven centuries of art from Strasbourg and the Upper Rhine region.

In 1349, the workers responsible for the maintenance of the cathedral established the Maison de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame. The east wing of the building is the oldest part (and was renovated in the 16th century), and the west wing was built from 1579 to 1585.

Today, the building houses the Musée de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame, which has one of the finest collections of European medieval art. The collection represents seven centuries of art created in Strasbourg and the Upper Rhine region.

Providing an overview of all the art forms, the artworks are displayed in harmony with the museum's architectural setting.  Since the 13th century, the Maison de l’Œuvre Notre-Dame has been home to the administrative offices for work on the Cathedral. Behind the venerable gables of the Maison, the fine interior décor, refreshing courtyards and charming small Gothic garden combine to give visitors an intimate sense of Strasbourg's history.

Discover the museum by strolling through the rooms and the collections: sculptures by the virtuoso artist Nikolaus Gerhaert von Leyden, paintings by Conrad Witz, Hans Baldung Grien or the master of the still life, Sébastien Stoskopff, stained-glass windows by Peter Hemmel von Andlau… The Œuvre Notre-Dame Museum offers you excellent examples of Alsatian art, from the Romanesque period to 1681.
