The museum is in a 13th century convent with 3 levels, hallways, colonnade, harden, very interesting, but easy to get loss in there. Most people visit the museum is for the Isenheim altarpiece. However, other artifacts and printings are also interesting.

Impressed with the Roman era exhibits, local artwork and the altarpiece. The display area for the alterpiece is nice. The museum is easy to visit and was not crowded. Two hours was good for me for the visit.

The centrepiece of the museum is the Isenheim Altarpiece. The presentation and interpretation is very insightful and well worth visiting between wine tastings!

visit if you stay more than two days in Colmar. Tour lasts about 1 hour. Gernika as tapestry looks grotesque.

I expected only crucifixions and Madonnas, but the museum has an excellent collection of modern art as well, and the cloisters are lovely.

The Issenheim Altar piece is truly outstanding, but the proceeding rooms of paintings are also remarkable for their color and lively treatment of their subject matter.
