About the Museum

Interior view of the Musée Alsacien in Strasbourg.

Strasbourg’s Musée Alsacien (Alsatian Museum) provides a glimpse into daily life in pre-industrial Alsace, a region of eastern France that borders Switzerland and Germany and is now the Bas-Rhin and Haute-Rhin departments. The Museum holds over 50,000 objects that are spread across three 16th and 17th century timber-framed residences and displayed in reconstructed interiors. Exhibitions highlight domestic and religious life; toys and recreation; the Alsatian viticultural and cheesemaking traditions; and popular images. The Museum also has a rich collection of artifacts from the Alsatian Jewish community.
