Maison des Arts

The Maison des Arts presents the city's fine arts collection. This old Alsatian house dating from the 17th century was the home of the cabinetmaker/marker and painter Henri Baumer (1876-1968) and his son-in-law the painter Philippe Steinmetz (1900-1987). It is in this artistic continuity that the City Council decided, in the early 2000s, to make it the City's fine arts museum. Since then, the collections have been enriched with works by the sculptor and engraver Daniel Meyer and the painter Paul Weiss.
