The Rohan Castle Museum

The Saverne Museum is the oldest municipal museum in Alsace after those in Strasbourg and Colmar. In creating a museum in 1858, the city of Saverne expressed its interest and desire to preserve in a historical place "objects that bear witness to the greatness and antiquity of Saverne". These included the first archaeological discoveries made in the Saverne area, the many sandstone sculptures discovered by chance during construction or consolidation work on houses or during the digging of the Marne-Rhine canal in 1845, as well as paintings from Saverne's churches and the castle.

From the outset, the museum's aim was to preserve Saverne's heritage as a whole.
The museum was initially housed in the Saint-Michel chapel, which was located near the parish church and the castle. In 1952, the city of Saverne bought the Rohan castle from the Domaines and moved the museum to the second floor in the south wing. At the end of the 1980s, the museum moved to the central part of the castle adjoining the south wing. This was reserved for the Louise Weiss section, which opened in 1996.
