Alsatian Museum is dedicated to all aspects of daily life in pre-industrial and early industrial Alsace. The museum contains over 5000 pieces, and is notable for its reconstruction of several charming, traditional houses, as well as its rich collection of artifacts documenting the everyday life of the Jewish people of Alsace. Your admission comes with entrance to several Renaissance timber-framed houses with painted furniture, costumes, local ceramics, toys, and religious and nonreligious images. Several reconstructions bring you into a high plains farmer's living room or craftsmen’s workshops, such as a forge and a carpentry shop.

  • Very interesting museum with lots of artifacts providing a vivid glimpse of life in older Alsace. A slight downside was the shortage of audio guides when we arrived. This limited the information to mostly French and German but still provided an interesting experience. Maybe get there early for a guide in English.
  • It's a must visit if you have a couple of hours in Strasbourg. Very well setup museum with good explanation (remember to ask for the audio guide at the ticket desk since they don't hand it out as default). Explains the history, the architecture, the dress code, the furniture, the stains used in the furniture, the sections of a typical house. The section on religion and especially the part on the exhibition in Nancy is boring
