Wallpaper museum

The presence of the wallpaper industry in Rixheim began with the installation in 1797 of the Hartmann Risler & Cie factory, later the Zuber & Cie factory (still active) in the former Commandery of the Teutonic Order. The Wallpaper Museum, which opened in 1983, holds the factory's collections as well as sets from the former Mulhouse Industrial Museum, to which have since been added numerous purchases and donations that have doubled the initial collection.
