We really enjoyed this museam. It was a stroll through a village, which is basically a collection of old houses, farms, workshops, keep etc., ranging from mediaval times to early 19th century. The buildings are beautifully reconstructed and placed smartly on a meandering route. There are various artisans at work (smithy, old school, shoe maker, baker, potter etc.). I've been... More

This could be an amazing place to visit but seems to have become complacent. We visited on a hot August day and the whole place seemed dirty, inside all the houses were covered in dust and cobwebs. There were one or two events in houses planned if we waited but not much going on at all. Last year we visited... More

I’ve come to Alsace to visit my friend living there and he couldn’t miss this museum while showing me his region. This tells you a lot about the details of life in Alsace years ago. Even though it’s not too much different than in villages somewhere else in the world, Ecomusee is a great place to enjoy the cute architecture... More

I lived in Aslace for a year, and this was one of the highlights of my time there. This village is absolutely adorable, and really fascinating. It's an idealized version of a past Alsatian village, and it has volunteers who reenact life as it was a century ago. If you don't speak French, it might be harder to appreciate this... More

Alsace is dear to my heart. It's lush and colorful topography, the wineries, eateries, costumes and architecture are amazing, and the 1000 year old Cathedral of Strasbourg is truly one of the most beautiful and intricate Gothic Cathedrals anywhere. My Alsatian friends are especially proud of their history, and to that end I was taken to the Ecomusee d'Alsace, a... More

What a vision those anthropology students had in the 1970's - to collect and rescue the architecture and culture of the Alsace region! Better than Disneyland for fans of this region's charm. Over 70 structures make up this village, complete with farm animals, gardens and a nice restaurant, using locally produced ingredients. Storks were in abundance and since it was... More

This museum is extremely well designed and easy to navigate for such a large property. Hired staff do an great job blending into historic roles and interacting with attendees to educate them on how simple processes taken for granted now were not so simple before. Look forward to returning one day soon.

In spite of having chose an horrendous day for our visit (it never stopped raining), we enjoyed every part of this peculiar open-air museum. It is very well conceived and maintained, interesting for both children and grown-ups. We were welcomed by the sound of scores of storks that were nesting on the nearby rooftops; we entered so many REAL old... More

I've been to this museum twice: once in May years ago & just now in December. French weather is very cold during December with the icy winds, so I would recommend going here when the weather is warmer in Spring to Autumn. It is a wonderful museum where old Alsacian buildings were moved & placed here to recreate an old... More
