To find this museum, if you have your back to the Cathedral area and head for the river, you will find a bridge over the river. Cross the bridge and the museum lies on the right hand side bordering the river. It is housed in a beautiful Alsatian building which is bigger than it looks with several floors and staircases....

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

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
