Beautiful house, good value, English Language guides available.

Lots to see here! Lovely house that the museum is situated in, good value (€13 for 2 adults), gave a good overview of the cultural mix that is Alsace.

This is one of the most amazing museums I've ever been to. From the outside it looks like a small non-descript building. But inside it leads to a wonderful old Alsatian building with floor after floor of the most incredible collection of Alsatian artifacts detailing every aspect of Alsatian culture. We spent hours going from room to room, floor to... More

In my opinion the main book on ticket desk gives a good idea of what was inside...not for me. It had a feeling of folsy old things.

It was ok, just a bit dull, & quite small considering the cost. We wouldn't recommend it when there are better things to do with your time.

I was expecting more out of this museum. I was hoping it would engage with the complexities of Alsatian identity vis-a-vis French and German culture. It, however, doesn't engage with Alsace's unique cultural and geographic position. The museum has thematic rooms (village life, religion(s), birth, death etc) and provides little explanation why those items are there. There are museum guides... More

We enjoyed the visit to this museum in a Alsacien town house. The building demonstrates how people lived in pre-industrial Alsace.

We chose this as our museum on the Strasbourg pass and were not disappointed. It’s located in a beautiful old townhome with an amazing courtyard. It’s like going back in time to an old German house! Very interesting exhibits and beautiful building.

Lovely, apparently overlooked museum featuring historic folk art, toys, costumes and interiors from the Alsace region. The buildings are interconnected with courtyards and themselves give you a nice sense of the traditional architecture of a city home.

When you visit House-Museum alsace, find out you really had a time travel one-two centuries. A house, real one with all rooms-kitchen, bedroom, hall, yard-and all utensils and clothes they used before. It is a wooden building with a small yard in middle, three floors, ( don't worry about steps) .One of the best experience someone like me, who love... More
