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.

  • Great museum, also interesting for children (my 5 year old really enjoyed the "Easter egg hunt" at the museum). It's great to see an old Strasbourg building from the inside and get an appreciation of how the rooms were arranged. I thought the first half of the museum was better than the second half. The second half had perhaps too much about that exhibition in Nancy. It was interesting that part of it was a "museum about a museum" (as the museum was already set up in 1906). Definitely worth a visit, also with children!
  • I was reminded of how much I don't know about the world and it's history. Docents were very courteous and informative. Alsace region has a very rich history.
