Alsace is a superb French region steeped in tradition. The museum covers local architecture, arts and craft, costumes. It has an interesting section about Jewish life in Alsace. It is centrally located and easily accessible.

We had totally different expectations and thought the museum would tell a bit about the history of the region. It is rather a collection of households' belongings from the previous century. Even though a good collection, it does not provide much historical context.

It's a museum exhibiting every aspect of the Alsacien life. Visiting this museum is like visiting one Alsacien house.

This was my second trip to the Alsace museum, and I enjoyed it just as much the second time. It's a wonderful exhibition on local history, including a look at stoves, furniture, traditions, and housing available throughout hundreds of years. I was incredibly pleased with the additions for the holiday season, including displays of costumes and Christmas traditions. This is... More

A great museum and very interesting. It was great to see a museum in situ as it was an old Alsatian house. interesting to see the Christmas trees hung up from the rafters apparently to stop rats and mice from eating the Christmas goodies on the tree. UNFORTUNATELY the visit was spoilt by the attitudes of the majority of the... More

I wish we had of been able to give this little gem of a museum the time it needed to full take in it's beauty and fascinating stories of Alsatian life in days gone by. Unfortunately we rushed it a bit, and we also did not realise that at the reception there is book (in English) that takes you through... More

This small museum, full of tons of historical maps and artifacts is quite enjoyable but I wish I could have learned more. Very few of the exhibit placards were in English and while I can read a French menu, I can't read French history.

If you want to get the feeling of how life in Alsace was at the beginning of the century do pay a visit at this quaint little museum where customs are revived. The furniture, the clothes, the habits, the layout, the kitchen in this typical Alsatian house make you feel "at home" in their home! It's as if through the... More

This museum, with its warren of rooms looks like house that a wizard like Ron Weasley could live in quite happily. If you don't like history, then it might not be the museum for you. It is not really exhibits, though there are costumes of the day set up like exhibits, but more like walking through a house whose occupants... More
