displays some furniture (some rooms given completely as they used to look once, that's quite nice), clothes, toys... there is also a wine-cellar mostly in French... directions slightly confusing not not much of a problem as the museum is small

Really interesting museum with a lot of artefacts that give a unique insight into the daily lives of Alsatian people in times gone by. Even the building that hosts the museum is a historical treasure!

Nice how you can walk through several floors of the old museum building. Interestingly there were hardly any people, but I believe it is definitely worth a visit.

This was an extremely comprehensive collection of the unique life and times of a people caught in the tug-of-war over the Alsace region for centuries. Absolutely charming and authentic! Be careful not to miss a single exhibit as the flow of your visit meanders over several floors and buildings. It can be confusing to know where to go next. First... More

This museum shows everything you'd want to see and more from the Alsace region. You wind through several houses and are able to view different portions of Alsacian life from home living, apothecaries, religion, toys & games, etc. Worth a visit if you have time but if your time is limited I'd recommend the History Museum over this museum as...

We loved this museum. It's very well done and distributed. It gives you a very good idea of the day to day life in Alsace. We definitely recommend it.

There was a lot to look at at this museum, especially if you have an interest in the daily lives and accoutrements of ordinarypeople. The path of the exhibits winds through the building with many small rooms devoted to particular themes. Definitely worth the time.

You need to give this a lot of time if you are going to appreciate the detail - loads of stuff to look at. We whizzed round on a free day, but I could have spent longer than the hour that we had.

Housed in three different old Alsatian houses, this cleverly designed museum shows you about Alsatian architecture and culture. The audio guide is included in the price and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit which took about one hour.
