Archeological stuff from WAY back in time!

This little museum is jam packed with all sorts of finds from 3,000 years ago and more. Very handsomely arranged in smallish rooms with nice lighting and SOME English, but not... read more

The majority of the commentary is in French, but there is a brochure available in English which provides visitors with the highlights of the collection. The Chariot for travelling through the world of the dead and the funeral headstone of a farming couple were of particular interest to me. The collection has examples of Artifacts ranging from the Palaeolithic, through... More

Visited on the Palais Rohan combo ticket. I enjoy history and artifacts but I found this museum to be pretty dry. Nothing about the exhibits pulled me in and a lot of the objects (pots, stoneware, glasses,etc.) were rather mundane. There were several larger artifacts consisting of surviving fragments, such as a room with a Roman Era mural, but such... More

I can recommend this museum as it gives the visitor a wonderful overview of Alsatian history, from the prehistoric time to the dawn of the Middle Ages. It's so nicely and attractively organized that I think it would even be interesting for school children. The informative summaries in the exhibition rooms are in English, which is nice. I especially liked... More

This little museum is jam packed with all sorts of finds from 3,000 years ago and more. Very handsomely arranged in smallish rooms with nice lighting and SOME English, but not too much. So, if you are fluent in French, I say definitely go here!! If not, you can figure out a lot of it, and it's still fascinating, but... More

Very interesting museum taking you from the Roman era through... has fabulous artifacts and well displayed (even though it's the basement) and it's well worth the visit. Like how it's displayed by year/age. The7 and 9 year olds found it a bit boring, more for the teenage crowd

I believe this is a good museum but it needs to be something you are really passionate about or in the mood for a classroom presentations. While the museum is worthy and a clear effort has been made to show you some very good representations of the settling of the area to the stone works and findings of the local... More

This important collection has some excellent finds, particularly the stone axes. The display boards need some refreshing ( not turning into interactive Disney play stations!), but there are a lot more recent materials from the Alsace, that are not recorded here and really should be. The toilets are hidden in the basemen with no notice on them at all, so... More

I like the Roman stuff and early medieval period as well. Located in the Palace Rohan on the bottom floors and it is well worth the visit if your into this sort of stuff. Not the largest collection, especially of the Roman period considering there was a large Roman encampment/fort in the area for many years, but what they do... More

I found this to be a well-rounded archeological museum, which told the story of Alsace's cultural and geological aspects. I especially enjoyed the section on funeral rites with displays of graves covered with glass. There was a lot of written information in French, but the script was often very small and it was a real pain to read. Only a... More
