Really learnt a lot about Alsatian way o life here. The audio guide is very good and worth using. It helps to appreciate the inventiveness of the local people, as well as insights into religion and dress. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting and glad we went in - "artifacts" are more cultural such as clothing, furniture, etc. Lots of info regarding way of life past and present.

This charming museum provides welcome insight into the culture and traditions of the Alsatian Region. It is easy to tour and the audio-guide provides a wealth of information. The exhibits are well laid out and interesting. When we finished our time here, we had a much fuller understanding of what makes this region so unique. For visitors to Strasbourg, I... More

A wonderful collection of exhibits covering many aspects of Alsacien life. The English audioguide (free) was indispensable in this case to understand what one was seeing. This place - more than any other - made me understand what life was like in Alsace historically. I was especially impressed by the collection of ceramic and cast-iron stoves - an essential artifact... More

This museum is a little jewel. It provides a glance of how life once was. It is very small and unfortunately there is not much written information, which is something that I usually like a lot in museums. Neverhless, it doesn't take much time to visit and if you have time, it is wrote to go.

I found this charming museum with its wonderful collections depicting traditional Alsacien life really quite fascinating. I love the way the rooms were set up as they would have been in a house.

My review is for the staff, not for the museum which was very beautiful and a real introduction to the Alsacian life and history. I highly recommend to visit. So my rating for the museum itself is a five star one, wish I could rate it higher. My complaint is about the two blonde ladies selling tickets at the museum.... More

We called in to the museum to keep out of the cold, and discovered a great display of life in Alsace over the past. Thre is everything set out in houses over a number of floors. There are free audio guides and many of the exhibits have some narration. There are also many boards with descriptions and many of these... More
