This museum is great for people of all ages as there are interactive parts for children and more detailed areas for adults. The musuem does a great job explaining the region's complex history all the way through current day. Allow around 1.5 hours to experience the entire portion and make sure to get the free audio guide!

This was a great stop on our tour and was included with the pass that we bought. The museum had some great exhibits and I would recommend stopping in to enjoy all that it has to offer.

Museum houses a surprisingly nice collection and walks visitors through the history of the city, from settlement through the EU. Highlights include a fine relief map and several in-depth interactive displays. Audio guide a bit over the top in terms of enthusiasm.

We were really thrilled with this museum. Very well arranged. Strasbourg has such a complicated history, but there were beautiful displays. We used the listening guide. When you go to a spot, it starts. And if you lose interest and walk away, it stops. A very good system. HIghly recommended!

The museum showcases the local history from the Stone Ages up to WWII. Plus the audioguide provided was excellent and one of the most interactive I've seen from museums. Overall a good attraction to visit plus, I techically had the whole museum to myself as I went in the late afternoon.

This museum is really interesting and covers the history of Strasbourg through medieval times to the present day. Lots of stuff for kids to touch and very interactive, they won't be bored with this one.

This museum was quite different to the Alsatian museum with more modern displays of the past 100 years or so. the effect of wars on this part of the country was made clear and increased my understanding though it was tragic what happened to ordinary people who got caught up in the conflicts.

If you're into contemporary History, this museum will take you on the XIX and XX centuries' conflictual and constructive roller coasters.
