It seems to be an informative museum, but without translation I can not understand many things, especially the videos

As a British family living in Europe we like to visit lots of musueums, and I was shocked at how unfriendly the staff member in the theatre section was to my children. She glared at them, shaking her head. I have no idea what it was she thought they were doing wrong, and she certainly wasn't going to enlighten me.... More

... but only a so-so collection. Worth the price of admission if ticket is purchased along with the daily pass from the history museum.

This museum has the idea of recreating the homes and environments that people lived in. Old toys, bridal gifts, beautiful pottery and so much wonderful furniture. Highly recommended. The gift shop is excellent!

I was first skeptical about visiting this museum at first as the entrance was mediocre. But once you enter, it opens up to a really spacious traditional Alsacian home. The museum explains a lot about how the Alsacians in the region live and their daily doings. By far one of my favourite museum I have visited in Europe so far.... More

Interesting museum, where you can see how people used to live in the alsatian region (furniture, clothes, toys, things of everyday life, etc). The museum is quite big. It is housed in three half-timbered houses and it is well organised. Everything is written only in french, so make sure that you take the english guide from the ticket office (the... More

It is a fantastic little museum to explore. Many items are displayed and give a more detailed illustration of the people living in the region a long time ago. However it is quite small and one doesn't take much time to finish walking. Overall it is an interesting place, definitely worth a visit.
