Become a corporate partner

By becoming a sponsor of the Musée Unterlinden, you associate your company’s name with that of a prestigious cultural institution, renowned throughout France and worldwide, while gaining access to a wide audience and reaping numerous advantages.


Why become a partner of the Musée Unterlinden?


An attractive geographic location


By associating your company’s name with the Musée Unterlinden, you gain access to a large audience. The Musée Unterlinden boasts one of the highest attendance figures among all regional fine arts museums in France, with more than 200,000 visitors annually. Lying between Strasbourg and Basel, not far from Freiburg and Mulhouse, the Musée Unterlinden attracts a varied audience of local, national and international visitors.  


A unique museum setting with prestigious collections


The museum is home to a magnificent group of paintings and sculptures from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The museum’s best-known work is the Isenheim Altarpiece, painted by Grünewald and sculpted by Niclaus of Haguenau in the early 16th century.  


The museum also exhibits to the public a very special collection of archaeological artefacts, including an exceptional gold bracelet, a Gallo-Roman mosaic, decorative art objects featuring precious gold and silver treasures, as well as a collection of folk arts and traditions paying tribute to everyday life in Alsace.


Furthermore, the museum boasts a very extensive modern art collection, continually enriched thanks to major acquisitions and gifts, offering a panorama of French 20th century art, from Impressionism to Abstraction (Monet, Bonnard, Magnelli, de Staël, Dubuffet, Poliakoff, etc.). 


The very architecture of the museum is another genuine attraction for visitors. The museum’s collections are housed on the site of the former Dominican convent of Unterlinden, dating from the 13th century.
