So well presented and with very interactive stories to follow with real ambiance to each era. We went inside by a beautiful sunny day but couldn't leave as history was developing silmutaneously in front of us and with the audio to make it even more lively. The maquette was another great surprise, we thought it was the end of the... More

If you're going to visit just one museum in Strasbourg, I recommend visiting this one. It gives you a very solid overview of the history of this turbulent area from the Middle Ages up until World War II, and the exhibits are really interactive. I definitely recommend it.

I would rate it as one of the best museums I've been to. Audio guide is very good although some of the seats are placed just out of zone of the item you're listening to and it changes. More to do with me being knackered by the time I went there. Great AC which was a reason I went there... More

We visited this on a Sunday afternoon. The museum is up-to-date with interactive exhibits. The information dates from ancient times through WWII. We even tried on armor and took pictures. This is very close to the cathedral and the Petite France area on the canal. What an excellent introduction to Strasbourg!

One stop to understand the history and significance of all Strasbourg. Audio is a must and free on Sunday's! The miniature model of Strabsourg built for the Kings of France is worth it alone, plus you can try on helmets and more.

We really enjoyed this museum because it wasn't cluttered with trivia. Upon entry you receive an audio guide which relates the story of Strasbourg, in itself an interesting subject. Only complaint was being asked to leave the building before stated closing time and thus being unable to quite finish the tour.

I like the curation and the design... shme i had only an hour... and could... More

If you are a huge history buff, then this is the place to be. So much to see and read, kept my mind going 100 miles an hour. And the building itself is gorgeous.

We really enjoyed this museum. The vast collection of artifacts, art and very well-presented exhibits were tremendously enhanced by the very good audio guide. I highly recommend starting at this museum during a visit to this gorgeous and fascinating city.
