Alsatian Museum, Strasbourg

Alsatian Museum, Strasbourg (must see)

You will love the Alsatian Museum which is housed in various timber-framed Renaissance houses on the Quai Saint Nicholas. The idea for this type of museum originated in 1900 with an article in the “Revue Alsacienne Illustrée”, calling for the preservation of objects from the past for future generations. The museum opened in 1907 with a very pro-French festival that annoyed the German City Council no end. In 1917 the museum was bought by the City of Strasbourg, which was once again under French rule.

You will see over 5,000 items devoted to art and folk tradition and rural life in the 18th and 19th centuries. You will find costumes, earthenware crockery, furniture and both religious and non-religious paintings.

The museum tour consists of visiting the city’s old houses that are linked by passageways and stairways. The reconstructed rooms represent Alsace’s wine country, the agricultural plains and the mountain area of the Vosges. There are also reconstructions of craftsmen’s workshops and an excellent representation of Strasbourg’s Jewish community. When you arrive in the “country kitchen” you almost expect the smell of fresh bread to linger in the air, and the pharmacy displays a mixture of 18th-century medicines and alchemy.

An audio guide is available in English upon request.

Tip:
If you intend to visit more than two museums on the same day, then you should buy a day pass. Optionally too, you can buy a 3-day pass from the tourist office, or a Strasbourg Pass.

Opening Hours:
Wed-Mon: 10am-6pm; closed on Tuesdays
