US US vaccination card is not acceptable at this museum
Sep 2021
We were very disappointed about this mesum. We were barred from entering the museum because they don't accept US vaccination card. We didn't have any problems with our cards in other cities such as Paris, Colmar, Nancy etc. The lady was not friendly either....

Refused Entry at the Alsatian Museum
Sep 2021
I have been around many different places in France, Switzerland, and Germany over the last 3 weeks. I have never been refused entry because of my United States vaccination card except today at the Alsacien Museum. I was granted access to the Strasbourg Cathedral with my card

It was ok
Sep 2021
When we were there some of the museum was closed due to some water damage/flooding issue. What we did see was ok. The Alsatian house the museum is in is quite nice. I would recommend this only if you have extra time.

Fascinating
Oct 2020
I loved this museum and think it would be ideal for children. There are many articles relating to life in medieval times, as well as everyday life scenarios using mannequins.

A fascinating and beautiful museum
Feb 2020
There is so much information in this museum that, had I had time to visit twice, I would have done, just to take it all in. It gives a marvellous idea of Alsacien culture, with artefacts and information, and is housed in a gorgeous example of the architecture it describes. It tackles more aspects of the culture than I was expecting: it was particularly interesting to learn about the various religions which shared space in the region. I would say that the museum does seem to romanticise the culture and history a little bit, I imagine it wasn't all prettiness and comfort, but it certainly gives you a springboard for going to learn more in your own time, and fires the imagination.

Interesting insight to the domestic sphere
Feb 2020 • Solo
This was one of two museums I was really keen to visit in Strasbourg, so I bought a one day pass for €12 (which covers most of the city’s museums), saving me €1.

If you’re interested in the home lives of people in Alsace then this is for you. Many displays of domestic situations such as stoves, kitchens, ceramics; but also life stages such as marriage, military conscription; as well as religion in Alsace, including Catholicism, the Protestants, and Judaism.

An interesting hour or so. Probably not suitable for people who have mobility issues as there are many stairs (I didn’t see any lifts, not surprising as it’s a very old (and beautiful) building.

Great place to learn of Alsatian history
Oct 2019
Our trip was to learn about the country where our Alsatian ancestors came from and what it was like when they lived there. This was a fascinating museum.
