Housed in a 13th-century Dominican sisters' convent, Musée d'Unterlinden features a large collection of local and international artworks and artifacts from prehistoric to contemporary times. Best known for its major collection of medieval and early Renaissance art from the Upper Rhine region, the collection's other highlights include the altarpieces, original drawings, engravings, and woodcuts by Colmar native Martin Schongauer; the Isenheim Altarpiece, sculpted by Niclaus of Haguenau and painted by Matthias Grünewald; engravings by Albrecht Dürer; and works by Lucas Cranach the Elder and Hans Holbein the Elder. In the basement, you'll find collections consisting of local archaeological artifacts. Religious and non-religious sculpture, mosaics, and stained glass from the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods are at the heart of the collection. Core representations include a Rückers harpsichord made in 1624, as well as decorative arts, weapons, furniture, musical instruments, toys, and ornate wine barrels from the 16th to the 19th centuries, the golden age of Alsatian woodworking.
