Museum, Art Gallery

Occupying the previous chapel is the Memling museum where six beautiful masterpieces by Hans are on view, each a pearl of Old Flemish art. Exceptional even among these is the Reliquary of St Ursula, documented to be one of the master's most imperative works. Six scenes from the fable of the saint decorate the reliquary: the arrival in Cologne; the entry into Basle prior to crossing the Alps; the Pope's welcome in Rome with the baptism of Ursula's companions; the re-embarkation at Basle for the return to Cologne; the massacre of the 11,000 virgins by the Huns; the Hun chieftain's proposal of marriage and Ursula's death are displayed.
