On a hillside in middle of the countryside, after a 10-15 minute climb, the visitor reaches this modern building dealing with the history of a region ruled at times by France and at others by Germany. The exhibits are very well done, and extremely interesting....More

It's hard to believe the EU built this high-tech gem in the quiet Alsatian woods. 30 minutes west of the Strasbourg-Switzerland highway, this shining museum on a hill overlooks the logging village of Schirmeck. Renovated in 2017, it tells the story of Alsace from 1870...More

Back and forth ... German and French in turn! Some people changed nationality five times during their life. That would not be so bad, but what the population of this area endured during WWII is not generally known and shocking. All schools in France and...More

This museum moved me to tears. The exhibits were fantastic. The museum is well documented and offers a free headset for tours in English and other languages. It is set up so you feel and though you are actually there, during the war itself. I...More

This memorial honours those who were imprisoned in the only Nazi concentration camp in France. The exhibits in the main hall are available in multiple languages through touch screens and well laid out. It is followed by a hall full of photographs of the victims,...More

This is a powerful and moving museum about the Alsatian experience from 1870 thru the establishment of the EU. The emphasis is certainly on the rise of Fascism and the nightmare the 1940 invasion and subsequent Nazi annexation inflicted on the Alsatian people. Few Americans...More

Wow. We thought we had learnt a lot about WW2 but were mistaken after visiting this memorial. The history of Alsace's involvement in the war is all here in many exhibitions and is so very interesting. We were all given an audio guide which was...More

This memorial is set high on a hill top with a view of the nearby Struthof concentration camp. We were part of a school trip and the Director of the memorial gave us a personal tour in excellent English! I cannot express how good he...More
