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

The name of this museum is slightly mis-leading. It is a traditional historical village with original structures moved from other places in Alsace. It is lovely. There were many storks nesting on the roofs of the houses, and the museum does a good job educating you about the history of Alsace and the local dialect. The cost of the museum... More

We spent a great afternoon at this most interesting museum and just wish that we had got there earlier in the day as we didn't get around all of the exhibits. It is a bit like the various Folk Museums in the UK, where buildings have been transferred lock, stock and barrel to give examples of the type of architecture... More

Highly recommended. It is a museum of medieval buildings set out as a village, complete with houses, blacksmiths, coopers, barbers, cobblers, basket makers, mills etc. Lots of demonstrations. Very bizarre museum within museum of extraordinary sculptures and another collection of ancient tractors and farm machinery. Excellent bakery for lunch. Also restaurant. Nature reserve adjacent. Bigger than Weald and Downland museum... More

Over 70 buildings from the region were rebuilt brick by brick on this site, and were furbished with utensils and furniture of the corresponding period. You can visit a farmhouse, a barber shop, a warehouse, even a monastery as it were by the time it was functioning. Really lovely site! It's a pity the kids were very tired and we... More

It's everything the other posts have said and more! Every year they continue to add to the exhibitions. 14 euro for adults for a 1 time visit. If you have the intention of going more than once (which as has been said that it is impossible to see everything in one go) a season pass is the way to go.... More

The Ecomusee was, hands down, the best place we visited on our two week trip to France and Germany. I say this having visited Neuschwanstein and various castles of the Rhine Valley on the same trip. I say this because we were allowed to enter and explore the charming half-timbered houses we had been admiring all over the Rhinelnad-Palatinate, Baden-Wurttemberg,... More

A village completely built from salvaged 15th, 16th century farms, houses and other buildings with real crafts (bread baking, animal husbandry etc.) and traditional stories and events for all the family. A amazing setting in this brown-field, disused potash mine area, now regenerated with little trace of its humble origins. Although there are numerous explanatory recordings in English round the...
