Musee D'unterlinden Reviews & Ratings
The Issenheim altarpiece on its own is a reason to visit the museum. Its location and courtyard are also valuable aspects. The rest of the collection seems a bit arbitrary, though I can recommend the art from the middle ages and the large closets in the design department upstairs. The modern art seems like an afterthought and I wouldn't bother with it if you're as impressed by the older arts as I am.
Home of the Isenheim Altarpiece, set in the perfect location and surrounded by just the right extras. There are also other works by Grunewald including engravings. The recent renovation had modernized the experience without destroying the feel of such an important destination.
A pretty good museum, it has a lot of floors and lot of artworks. Although i am not an art fan i enjoyed it a lot. The reason i am giving only 4 stars are the missing pieces of the altar and some pf the staff were also quite rude. I would especially recomend the top floor which has a lot of bug artworks and of course the main attraction the altar.
The museum was not worth the money, a 13€ entry fee was to much. The archaeology section was poorly executed and was very limited. The rest of the museum consists of art which has a relatively large focus on "modern" art. I would not recommend this museum to anyone unless they want to see a specific art piece from up close. The building is nice as it is located in a church/monastery however this makes for a confusing walk as there is no proper route to follow.
Highlight and very nice. Great Show to Story. A worthwhile visit for anyone visiting this place ✨✨✨
