This larger than expected museum is located on one of the canals. The entrance of the museum is no indicative of the size of the museum. The museum spans several houses and includes a basement with a brewing exhibit. The museum covers tools, lifestyle, clothing, food, and other daily life matters of the region. You can see the amalgamation of... More

I loved this museum. My grandfather was Alsacien and it was so neat to see the traditions, customs, etc. of the Alsaciens and compare that to my memories of my him....he always had a corner cabinet for the important papers. This is a very informative museum. The numbering system for the tour needs to be modified so it is easier... More

This little museum is actually an old home, with at least 3 levels, built around a central courtyard. It is packed with well-displayed articles of everyday life in the past 5-6 hundred years, including typical home interiors, heating, furnishings, clothing, specialty items, cooking, horse & buggy items, and much, much more. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

Just a genuinely nice walk through different areas of Alsatian history, all set out very well and in a lovely building. Wide range of artefacts that demonstrated the development of Alsatian life interestingly.

Behind the entrance is a wonderful linkage of original houses, that are worth exploring even if you are not particularly interested in the rural history of the Alsace. The insight into the once numerous communities of Jewish people in this region was particularly poignant .

There was so much to see and learn from. It is a must for anyone who loves domestic history when visiting Strasbourg. I loved the original way to display a Christmas tree, the birthing chair was a revelation, the collection of Springerle molds held a special place in my heart and the beautiful old building was such a treat.

The museum is chock-full of bits and pieces of interesting Alsatian history, spread through multiple floors of several old Half-timbered houses and buildings. The material itself is quite impressive, though it does lack explanation for English speakers. Additionally, because of its physical structure, there are places the optimal route through the maze is not obvious. And the frequent narrow staircases... More

Beautiful old building housing items from past lives of Alsaciens. Use your Strasbourg Pass purchased from the TI for free our half-price admission.

Cute museum filled with interesting artefacts. Good audio guide. It is easy to feel lost or confused where to go next. I found the history of the traditional costumes particularly interesting.
