... 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

Interesting museum, where you can see how people used to live in the alsatian region (furniture, clothes, toys, things of everyday life, etc). The museum is quite big. It is housed in three half-timbered houses and it is well organised. Everything is written only in french, so make sure that you take the english guide from the ticket office (the... More

It is a fantastic little museum to explore. Many items are displayed and give a more detailed illustration of the people living in the region a long time ago. However it is quite small and one doesn't take much time to finish walking. Overall it is an interesting place, definitely worth a visit.

As per the name, this museum is focussed on the history and culture of the local area. It is a lovely museum which I enjoyed, filled with many things to see. Tips: (1) There isn't much interactivity, so small children may not enjoy and (2) the direction/path of viewing is a little confusing across the floors, so I recommend that... More

I stepped inside this museum expecting to spend there 30 minutes or so... as it often happens in local museums but I was so wrong! It was a passionating experience: life and traditions of alsacian people are wonderfully displayed and explained. The audioguide is included in the entry fee and it could not be more exhaustive and clearer. The reconstruction... More

This museum shows how life was like for everyday folk in old Strasbourg, it's actually a large house that you move around. Its interesting for adults but teens will get bored quickly, not much interactivity.

I really liked the displays and thought they seemed very authentic. But since I cannot understand any French, many of the displays were meaningless for me. They did have a booklet with a description, but not everything. The English was not well done. Also, it was difficult to traverse the museum, as the next rooms were difficult to figure out.

I stumbled onto this museum by accident and spent several hours there learning about the Alsatian culture through different themed rooms that went from the top to the cellar. A must if you want to understand this part of France.
