Unassuming location portraying the history and life of the Alsace Region

Excellent venue portraying the history and life in the Alsace Region. Excellent displays and the building is in its original state. Exercise care when using the stair cases.

extensive and fascinating look at life in Alsace Lorraine circa 1900- and it was empty, even in high tourist season. A real discovery.

This Museum houses everything you always wanted to know about Alsace , its people , economy, trades, customs, history and culture of all ethnic groups. It is well stocked and presented with good write ups --- visually beautiful and equally interesting. The exhibits are authentic and representative of all aspects of Alsatian life, down to the very last detail. The... More

This museum is great. It shows the lifestyle of a middle class family including furniture, bedrooms, a kitchen and the utensils. (we saw a lamb cake pan like our grandmother had as well as springerle molds.) There is a wine press and wine barrels in the basement level, a courtyard and period clothing. Worth a trip.

The museum is focused on domestic (and, to a lesser extent, trades life) in the region, mostly in the 18th and 19th century (into the early 20th). There are many displays of rooms in homes and implements in them. There are a good deal of costumes and pictures of costumes. And it has a lot of material about religion in... More

1. You love Germanic folk art 2. To get inside a series of old, Alsatian houses with their charming courtyards. 3. To see the Alsatian folk costumes 4. If you have never been to a folk art museum and are curious about what's inside: hand-made icons, hand-made funeral wreaths, old time tools, old time kitchenware, old time everything. It can...

The museum is based on Alsatian Culture and has a number of rooms to display the items spread over a couple of buildings. They have free lockers for you to store your stuff because there are narrow hallways and steep stairs. The museum is like Ikea, once youre in you have to continue on the path. It was difficult for...

If you're interested in learning about how people lived in Alsace throughout history, this place has lots of fascinate artifacts from past eras. Some of the dolls there are little creepy though.
