The Wallpaper Museum at Rixheim in the Alsace, certified as a Musée de France, will change the way you look at those rolls you think you know ! It is one of the technical museums of the Southern Alsace and offers the chance to admire wallpaper dating back to the 18th Century right up to the present day, from traditional domino-print patterns to creations by contemporary designers.
The panoramics, which turn walls into visions of far off countries, exotic landscapes and idyllic gardens, are the stuff of dreams. Take a trip back in time to the beginning of the 19th Century, to India or North America; relive the Greek war of independence or admire the lush flora of Eldorado.
Please note ! From 23 October 2023, the museum will close its doors for an indeterminate period, currently estimated at between 12 and 24 months.
A number of projects are currently underway, including transferring the collections to new storage areas and renovating the building. The Commanderie de Rixheim, a listed historic monument, is currently undergoing a restoration programme (roofs, roof timbers, exterior joinery, façades, etc.).
