The museum is an act of defiance – its purpose was to preserve the city’s authentic identity in the face of forced Germanisation. Once in 1917, it seemed like this ‘Den Francophile’ was in danger of being shut down but an intervention by the town municipality saved it. If that sounds severe, don’t worry; these guys preserved the Alsatian spirit too, making for a rather friendly and charming tour through this oddity. As such, it’s a rather strange attraction – three regular houses linked by a maze of corridors and staircases. Its five thousand exhibits would be pretty standards items if it weren’t for their historical significance (they’re all from the 14th to 19th centuries). Toys, costumes, furniture, paintings and other artwork, and tools are exhibited over some 30 rooms, painting a good picture of both rural and city life through the centuries. The interiors are also designed in such a way that different parts reflect different Alsatian geographical regions - agricultural plain, wine country, or the mountains of the Vosges.

An interesting museum about Alsacian culture in a beautiful old building in the heart of Strasbourg. Some of the displays could do with being brought up to date. Not very child-friendly (no interactive displays, no touching allowed).
It was nice and bigger than expected, but you definitely need to get a headset or be able to read French or German.
The houses that make up the wonderfully circuitous exhibits are half of the fun. An underrated but of Strasbourg.
I loved this museum, particularly the homes it occupied. An underrated charmer in Strasbourg.
A nice museum, not so interesting from my personal view. Other may like it more. Nonetheless, good representation of alsatian every day life.
