Alsatian Museum is dedicated to all aspects of daily life in pre-industrial and early industrial Alsace. The museum contains over 5000 pieces, and is notable for its reconstruction of several charming, traditional houses, as well as its rich collection of artifacts documenting the everyday life of the Jewish people of Alsace. Your admission comes with entrance to several Renaissance timber-framed houses with painted furniture, costumes, local ceramics, toys, and religious and nonreligious images. Several reconstructions bring you into a high plains farmer's living room or craftsmen’s workshops, such as a forge and a carpentry shop.
