Musee Alsacien - A moment in time

Gorgeous inside and out, and perfect if you have a couple of hours and are interested in history, decoration and culture. Central and easy to get to as well.

We went there to shelter from the bitter wind but stayed over 2 hours due to the charm of the place. The museum is housed in one of the typical old Alsatian house which oozed character. It gives you a good idea of how the Alsatians used to live a couple of centuries ago. Bedrooms, stub and kitchen are stocked... More

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

I was very nicely surprised upon visiting this museum It was interesting and informative and I learnt a lot about the history of the area and really got a good sense of the area. It's laid out very well and the staff were very friendly.

... 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
