We arrived at the Museum and were immediately absorbed with the layout. Very good audio guides which automatically told the stories as you moved around. Very thought provoking especially on the day the UK voted to leave Europe!

The history of Alsace is so rich and varied. For one who likes history one can get a good picture of what went on through the ages.

We learnt a lot about Alsace and Straßbourg in this museum. It gives an insight about past and present of Straßbourg and it's relationship to Europe. No wonder it the European capital. It can be tiring to see the whole museum. Take your time and spend some time afterwards sipping beer or coffee in the nearby restaurant. Worth a visit.

I strongly recommend that you take the GPS-activated audio guide, which is free to use; you'll gain a lot more from your visit if you use it. Unfortunately,... More
