Behind the entrance is a wonderful linkage of original houses, that are worth exploring even if you are not particularly interested in the rural history of the Alsace. The insight into the once numerous communities of Jewish people in this region was particularly poignant .

There was so much to see and learn from. It is a must for anyone who loves domestic history when visiting Strasbourg. I loved the original way to display a Christmas tree, the birthing chair was a revelation, the collection of Springerle molds held a special place in my heart and the beautiful old building was such a treat.

The museum is chock-full of bits and pieces of interesting Alsatian history, spread through multiple floors of several old Half-timbered houses and buildings. The material itself is quite impressive, though it does lack explanation for English speakers. Additionally, because of its physical structure, there are places the optimal route through the maze is not obvious. And the frequent narrow staircases... More

Beautiful old building housing items from past lives of Alsaciens. Use your Strasbourg Pass purchased from the TI for free our half-price admission.

Cute museum filled with interesting artefacts. Good audio guide. It is easy to feel lost or confused where to go next. I found the history of the traditional costumes particularly interesting.

Musee Alsacien is not big. However, it is one of the nicest of its kind in all the places I have visited. It has a lot of artifacts and is very information about the area Alsac.

Part of the exhibit is devoted on how the houses were built, what materials were used,... More

Take the audio guide and walk through the museum. The exhibits are interesting and well thought out, the house itself is very nice too. We enjoyed our visit and believe we got a good feel for life in Alsace back when....

Located in a 17th century building in the centre of the city this museum is worth a visit. It consists of several buildings joined together which show how life was lived in Alsace from 1600's. There is an audio guide but not all the exhibits are covered and the signs to the ones that are are not always clear. Recommended.
