History and tradition
Nature and environment
Bouxwiller (Bas-Rhin)
France
The Pays de Hanau Museum in Bouxwiller is housed in a beautifully renovated architectural complex listed as an Historic Monument. The 16th century corn exchange and the castle chapel from the 14th century form the setting for this Musée de France, a veritable aid to interpreting a region with multiple heritages.

The spaces punctuated by the imposing wooden roof structure create original atmospheres, appropriate to the different themes. Thanks to a subtle and modern museum design, you will discover the history, culture and natural environment of this engaging region which is the Pays de Hanau.
The town of Bouxwiller, the former capital of the County of Hanau-Lichtenberg, and later the residence of the princes of Hesse-Darmstadt, has retained numerous reminders of its remarkable past.

Games, hands-on exhibits, numerous films and listening points give young and old alike a true feel of the museum. Little family anecdotes also give a tour of the museum a playful feel.
