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.

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.
