Alsace has gone thru many changes with the wars and the people have beautifully endured all the changes as is witnessed in this museum. We were fortunate to go on a free day. It is housed in a former residence(s) and contains furniture (which is artwork), clothes during the times, religious items (which no doubt helped their all the changes),... More

I like ethnographic museums, and this one didn't disappoint. It covered everything from home life to weddings, religion and Christmas traditions. Allow about two hours to see everything.

My 9-year-old son and I spent 45 mins here before jumping on a boat tour. It was an interesting glimpse into the way people lived here in centuries past. An hour would be plenty of time to get a good overview.

Located close to Le Petit France. Mostly in French but enjoyed by just looking and walking. Need at least 1 hour if not French and longer if you are French. Many opportunities for lovely photos. Toilets available. Small fee asked

Great presentation of the every day lives and lifestyles during a limited time of 1500 to about 1800. It covers the domestic aspects of everyday life but very little of the political or historical occurrences in the region. There are some interesting sections on the multi religious nature of the region and the way things worked out of this. We... More

A well done and extensive display arranged over 2 old houses. They have guides in 4 languages. Much more than meets the eye and we had a bit of museum fatigue by the end. A good insight to the Alsacien antecedents of the area. Lots of good examples of historic designs and decorative arts as well as the traditions. We... More

This museum displays the domestic culture of Alsace by letting you walk through typical houses of Alsace. Rooms are organized according to themes of different events of common life, such as birth, marriage, religion, death etc., as well as day-to-day household activities, such as heating, cooking etc. Some useful points: -- The opening hours mentioned in the website is very...

We thought that this was a small museum. Not at all, we needed far more time to look at all the exhibits and they were laid out in a very clear and thematic way. Alsace rural life of 200 years ago was particularly interesting.

We love visiting living museums and make it a point to visit them if we are nearby. We were under the impression that this was that type of museum. I really liked the parts of the museum where we could walk right through living areas but those were not that many. Maybe they should think about adding people with period... More

Kinda boring, a few hits like in the remake of homes set up with funiture and dresses models. Staff nice but seem to follow you around like your going to run off with their art or a piece of the house.
