Located in the Grande Boucherie, the city's old slaughterhouse from 1587, Musée historique de la ville de Strasbourg is dedicated to displaying artifacts that tell the tumultuous tale of Strasbourg. One of these artifacts is the "Grüselhorn," a horn that was blown every evening at 10:00 p.m. during medieval times to order Jewish people out of the city. Examine the 1/600 scale models depicting the city in 1727. The recently renovated collections span the Middle Ages to the French Revolution, including paintings, graphic arts, costumes, furniture, military weapons, uniforms, and objects from daily life.

  • Always bring my friends when they come over. The part when Strasbourg goes from German to French back and fourth is super interesting! There are translations which makes it accessible
  • Very enjoyable! Lots to see and learn about the city of Strasbourg, it's social hierarchy, history, trades and trends. Well worth the visit! I especially enjoyed the historical information regarding the 20th and 19th century history of the city.
