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

This museum has some really cool artifacts, including human and animal skeletons, pottery, weapons, tools, and much more. The admission to this museum was only 3 euro, and there was a ton to see. I wish I spoke German, because nearly all of the information was in German. I would have enjoyed it more if they had an English information... More

Lots of arceological findings. And even more. Mostly presented in a very traditional "museum style". I have been to hundreds of museums and to be honest, I found this one of the most boring...

We have visited the archeological museum just as a killing time while waiting for our Batorama trip, it turned out to be better as expected, a lot of items exhibited and thoroughly covered from the history´s point of view. Even incited us to visit other towns in Alsace. Btw, with a Batorama ticket you get a 20% discount from the... More

Not really that interesting. It also was annoying that one of the people who worked there followed me around very obviously.

Only one word to describe it. Extremely boring, we even rented the audio guides which were incomprensible. Whoever did the translation did a poor job and we didn't comprehend what they were explaining half the time. Never been to such a dull museum.
