Quite possibly the most important building in the city – the palace holds three museums of significance - the Archaeological Museum (basement), the Museum of Decorative Arts (ground floor) and the Museum of Fine Arts (first and second floor). But that’s not how it started off. Finished in 1742, the place has been residence of many of France’s most famous rulers, including Los XV, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon Bonaparte and his two wives.
The Archeological Museum here is began it’s life thanks to a donation in 1771, and it’s collection continue to grow. It showcases the very first human dwellings in the surrounding land as well as the subsequent civilizations (Argentoratum, Roman and Merovingian).
The Museum of Decorative Arts is divided into two distinct parts - late Baroque, Rococo and Empire on one half and Alsatian on the other. Exhibits include decorative of high quality and artistry - Gobelins tapestries, chinoiserie, wood carvings, murals, stucco décor, porcelain works and vermeil work.
The Museum of Fine Arts is the most popular one. Contrary to the Musee de l'Oeuvre Notre Dame, the artists displayed here are prominently non-upper Rhine. This collection is constantly being added to through donations and acquisitions.

Really enjoyed this place, great to see how the rich used to live.... and it was free due to some national day in Europe, winning!
One of the most beautiful places on Earth.
I only visited the arqueological museum in the underground's palace. I found it very interesting
Full of history and beautifulness a greater place to visit?
For the love of Pete check the opening hours for the various exhibition floors before going. I went for the historic clock mechanisms... definitely worth it!
