I can only thank my lucky stars that even with the renovation and expansion the museum is undergoing, we were able to view the paintings I had dreamed of seeing. During the renovation the Dominican chapel remains open and houses a temporary exhibit. The chapel is located about 200 meters from the rest of the Musée Unterlinden complex.
The museum is one of France’s greatest museums and we will have to come back to see the decorative arts, military weapons, gold and silver treasures, ancient archeology and impressive modern art collection when it re-opens in its entirety. It is going to be even more fabulous than before.
The altarpiece depicting Saint Catherine and Saint Lawrence (c. 1510) and sculptures from the Late Middle Ages round out the presentation. An audioguide is available to give you an in-depth self-tour of these amazing artworks.
