Palais Rohan

Palais Rohan

The French really have the impressive museum thing down. I guess it really helps to have a bunch of palaces just waiting to be filled with something other than a king. Speaking of kings, Louis XV stayed here in 1744 but I'm not sure for how long. The palace wasn't actually built for him it was built for the Bishop of Strasbourg. Looks like being a bishop was a pretty lucrative job.

The Palais Rohan isn't just home to one museum, it actually houses three: the archeological museum, the museum of fine arts and the museum of decorative arts.

I didn't get a chance to go in it which means I'll just have to make another trip there to check it out.

My other photographs of France can be found in the gallery.
