The ground-floor Museum of Decorative Arts displays an array of 17th- to 19th-century furnishings, sculptures, jewelry and ceramics within the former Cardinal apartments, while the basement Archaeological Museum exhibits a number of significant prehistoric and medieval artifacts found during local excavations.
The Palais Rohan is located just south of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Strasbourg’s historic center, and it is open from midday until 6 p.m. every day except Tuesday. Adult admission costs €6.50 for each museum, while combination tickets are available for €8.
