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...

We really enjoyed this museam. It was a stroll through a village, which is basically a collection of old houses, farms, workshops, keep etc., ranging from mediaval times to early 19th century. The buildings are beautifully reconstructed and placed smartly on a meandering route. There are various artisans at work (smithy, old school, shoe maker, baker, potter etc.). I've been... More

This could be an amazing place to visit but seems to have become complacent. We visited on a hot August day and the whole place seemed dirty, inside all the houses were covered in dust and cobwebs. There were one or two events in houses planned if we waited but not much going on at all. Last year we visited... More

I’ve come to Alsace to visit my friend living there and he couldn’t miss this museum while showing me his region. This tells you a lot about the details of life in Alsace years ago. Even though it’s not too much different than in villages somewhere else in the world, Ecomusee is a great place to enjoy the cute architecture... More
