Archeological Museum, Strasbourg (must see)

The Musée Archeologique is housed in the basement of Rohan Palace; it is the largest of all the Alsatian museums and one of the best of its kind in France.

The items on display are regional archaeological findings dating from Prehistory and comprise an important collection including tools and fossils of mammoths found in the Rhine area dating back to the Paleolithic epoch and human bones found in the Mannlefelsen Grottos from the Mesolithic era.

The Neolithic epoch is represented by human skulls that had been trepanned, early ceramic vases and jewelry made of pearls, horns and boar tusks. From the Bronze Age, you can admire bronze bowls and see a skeleton from the Bell Beaker civilization.

In the Iron Age section of the museum, you will find the reproduction of a funeral chariot, ceramics and bronze jewelry, while the Gallo-Roman section has a fine example of a funeral stele, part of a Roman altar to the god Mars and bronze statues.
