We really enjoyed visiting the Ecomusee d'Alsace! We went when the storks were nesting and it was so enjoyable seeing those beautiful birds all around the park. The buildings they have there are very interesting, from farmer's houses to towers and complete farms (all these buildings were to be demolished and were bought by the museum, taken piece by piece...

We were there when they opened at 10, and visited the place until 12.30. Maybe we did not see it all only 80%

We have actually visited this place 3 times over the years and loved it on each occasion. It is essentially a 'fake' village constructed with original buildings from region that have been dismantled and then reconstructed to represent what life was like in Alsace. Each building is a good example of the local architecture and each is significant in some... More

If you're without children, this can easily be avoided. The 'real' Alsace is best viewed by just going to any of the flower filled villages, complete with great restaurants, and less of the Disney/Educational artificial hoopla... Save your $$ on a lunch or a couple of drinks...

Easy to locate when driving. The scope of buildings and their state of restoration is very impressive indeed. There is much to read at most points and many buildings can be entered. We visited on a day when the weather was fine and spent nearly 5 hours there. There is plenty for both adults and children to experience. However if... More

This is a "Do Not Miss" spot. They have re-created a village in the style of many years ago along with people who work within the town. Storks abound on he rooftops. They also offer a picnic area and sandwich shop.

An amazing open museum. It's actually a whole authentic village in Alsace from the beginning of the 20th century. Very interesting things to see inside the houses and it's also amazing to walk around the village and the fields. Highly recommended. Low entrance fee.

One of the most amazing collections I've ever seen. Accurately interpreted including interiors of the buildings. Even in the rain, I spent over two hours here. The bakery had the most amazing blueberry torte! Everyone there was interested and interesting. Unbelievable quality museum! Perfect for families, too!

If you are interested in architecture this is the place to visit. There are a lot of historical homes collected from around France and you can wander around the entire park just enjoying the scenery. There are also shows about various aspects of French farm life, they are all in French, but I still enjoyed them. There is also a... More

This is unlike almost all other museums in that old houses have been lovingly dismantled and then very sympathetically rebuilt in one location. Everything from the barbers shop, through farm houses, wheelwrights, saddlers, wine makers, the old school house, etc. etc. There are plenty of animals to give it the authentic air, and also to keep the kids happy, while...
