A former residence of the prince-bishops, the Rohan Palace was built between 1732 and 1742. The building today houses three museums:
the Decorative Arts Museum, the golden age of the cardinals of Rohan

This visit to the luxurious state apartments created for the Cardinals is followed by a chance to discover Strasbourg’s decorative arts dating from 1681 to the mid-19th century (including the world-renowned Hannong ceramics, furniture, sculpture and painting, timepieces, ironware, pewter and the magnificent gold and silverware items).
the Fine Arts Museum, masterpieces from the greatest European painters
Giotto - La Crucifixion
Musées de Strasbourg - M. BERTOLA
Situated on the first floor of the Palace, the museum boasts a fine collection of Italian, French, Spanish, Flemish and Dutch paintings, dating from the 14th century to 1870. It includes works by Giotto, Memling, Botticelli, Raphael, Corregio, Veronese, El Greco, Ribera, Philippe de Champaigne, Vouet, Claude Lorrain, Rubens, Van Dyck, Ruysdaël, Pieter de Hoogh, Tiepolo, Canaletto, Largillière, Watteau, Boucher, Goya, Corot, Delacroix and Courbet, etc.
the Archaeological Museum, bringing the past to life
Stèle de Largennius -
Musées de Strasbourg -
Housed in the basement of the Rohan Palace, the archaeological museum is one of the most finest in France thanks to the sheer magnitude of its collections. Here, visitors may discover several thousand years of Alsatian history, dating from 600,000 BC to 880, including some rich tombs from the bronze and iron ages, in addition to weapons and jewellery from the Merovingian period, not forgetting a unique opportunity to discover the life of the very first farmers in the Neolithic period or the day-today life of the Gallo-Romans.
