Aux grands maux les grands remèdes

Une pharmacie de campagne à l’Écomusée d’Alsace
Make your burns disappear with sauerkraut, use bacon rind for splinters, put onion on your eyelids when they’re swollen…. Popular beliefs have long been a source for treating little aches and pains.

At the Écomusée d’Alsace, the Illkirch-Graffenstaden house has been turned into a faithful replica of a rural pharmacy! It’ll show you how the health system worked in the early 20th century, at a time when healers, witches and charlatans made their voices heard alongside doctors, midwives and pharmacists.

This exhibition invites you to find out more about how treatment has evolved over the ages. You’ll be using your five senses to explore popular beliefs and medical plants in Alsace in a totally immersive exhibition for all the family!
