History and tradition

Musée Alsacien
The Alsatian Museum is a social museum that takes visitors on a charming tour of old Strasbourg homes linked by wooden staircases and passageways.

Thousands of objects bearing witness to rural life in Alsace in the 18th and 19th centuries are on display, including costumes, furniture, ceramics and toys. Reconstructions of typical Alsatian interiors and craftsmen's workshops punctuate the museum tour.

Several rooms are fairly faithful replicas of rural interiors, such as the Stùb of a farmhouse in Wintzenheim, while others are more imaginary, such as the kitchen or the chemist's workshop.

Visitors to the Alsatian Museum move through the rooms as if they were walking through a house whose inhabitants have just left. The creaking floors, furniture and objects evoke a life that is both familiar and very different from today's.

To breathe new life into its collections, the Alsatian Museum organises a number of events and exhibitions that highlight its constant concern to link past and present, tradition and modernity.
