Dragged on a bit. Support for English-speaking visitors is suboptimal. Impressed that they had the foresight to start collecting items for the museum more than 100 years ago.

We love being taking back in time to see how people lived in another time, and the Musee Alsacien gave us that experience completely! It's housed in a group of historic buildings around a charming central courtyard . It shows artifacts of daily life, many complete rooms of furnishings showing how they lived and worked, an apothecary shop, tools, costumes,... More

I knew for sure that I had to visit this place if I were to spend three or four days in Strasbourg many years ago long before the range of calendar dates suitable for indicating the time of my visit were made available for completing this review. I had studied German and French and wanted to see this city as... More

Trying to enter the museum at 17:45 the staff motivated us to give up our wish to stay there just for 15 minutes due to the fact that it was almost the time to leave their working place.

This museum introduces you to the customs and way of life of the Alsace people from around the 1700s to early 1900s. Different rooms have different themes. There are English booklets to borrow from the front desk. The building itself is of interest as well as the collection within. Combine this museum with a visit to the Archaeological Museum and...

Small but interesting museum which gives one a good idea of Alsacian life. Old tools, objects, pieces of furniture, clothing and photographs are all set in an old traditional alsacian house. Worth visiting.

Rather poorly organized and implemented museum. Museum consists of a series of rooms attempting to "replicate" what live was like in traditional Alsacienne homes. Very little in the way of English translation when I was there.

This lovely little museum is located in three historic Alsacien houses that are connected in an interesting way. The place is filled with interesting artifacts of local life from the area. The exhibits are curated excellently. Make sure you take the little recorded tour with head sets.
