Surprisingly great collection

The presentation could indeed be better and more interesting, but the collection is absolutely fascinating! Would recommend to anyone into Prehistoric and Roman history.

The collection of archeological material was extensive and the explanatory notes were helpful. However, the presentation of the material could be improved with the use of more audio-visual aids and better locational maps.

Amazing founds uit of the Roman age; a real Roman sword, statues of the Roman Gods, funeral tombs; also great prehistoric and Celtic stuff. Definitely worth a visit.

The majority of the commentary is in French, but there is a brochure available in English which provides visitors with the highlights of the collection. The Chariot for travelling through the world of the dead and the funeral headstone of a farming couple were of particular interest to me. The collection has examples of Artifacts ranging from the Palaeolithic, through... More

Visited on the Palais Rohan combo ticket. I enjoy history and artifacts but I found this museum to be pretty dry. Nothing about the exhibits pulled me in and a lot of the objects (pots, stoneware, glasses,etc.) were rather mundane. There were several larger artifacts consisting of surviving fragments, such as a room with a Roman Era mural, but such... More

I can recommend this museum as it gives the visitor a wonderful overview of Alsatian history, from the prehistoric time to the dawn of the Middle Ages. It's so nicely and attractively organized that I think it would even be interesting for school children. The informative summaries in the exhibition rooms are in English, which is nice. I especially liked... More

This little museum is jam packed with all sorts of finds from 3,000 years ago and more. Very handsomely arranged in smallish rooms with nice lighting and SOME English, but not too much. So, if you are fluent in French, I say definitely go here!! If not, you can figure out a lot of it, and it's still fascinating, but... More

Very interesting museum taking you from the Roman era through... has fabulous artifacts and well displayed (even though it's the basement) and it's well worth the visit. Like how it's displayed by year/age. The7 and 9 year olds found it a bit boring, more for the teenage crowd

I believe this is a good museum but it needs to be something you are really passionate about or in the mood for a classroom presentations. While the museum is worthy and a clear effort has been made to show you some very good representations of the settling of the area to the stone works and findings of the local... More
