Lovely museum, we used the self guided audio tour. Perhaps we might have enjoyed the tour with written descriptions, simply for the sake of time. The displays were well organized and authentic. The building itself was also beautiful.

This museum had many interesting artifacts. It is always interesting seeing how people decorated the objects that they used everyday. There are examples of everything from the heating systems to furniture and costumes. An English guide book is available. There is also a reduced entry fee for seniors.

It was located at the centre of town, very well presented and had authentic collections. It was very popular and there were many tourists looking at the collections

Interesting house but with little English explanations. There are some English explanations but they are generally barely adequate.

Social history museum which gave a nice background into a very interesting area which I knew nothing about. Set in an old house near the Petite France area of Strasbourg the English guide information was easy to follow and gave just the right amount of detail.

This larger than expected museum is located on one of the canals. The entrance of the museum is no indicative of the size of the museum. The museum spans several houses and includes a basement with a brewing exhibit. The museum covers tools, lifestyle, clothing, food, and other daily life matters of the region. You can see the amalgamation of... More

I loved this museum. My grandfather was Alsacien and it was so neat to see the traditions, customs, etc. of the Alsaciens and compare that to my memories of my him....he always had a corner cabinet for the important papers. This is a very informative museum. The numbering system for the tour needs to be modified so it is easier... More

This little museum is actually an old home, with at least 3 levels, built around a central courtyard. It is packed with well-displayed articles of everyday life in the past 5-6 hundred years, including typical home interiors, heating, furnishings, clothing, specialty items, cooking, horse & buggy items, and much, much more. We enjoyed it thoroughly!
