  • Important: I didn't request for an audio guide, though is available Very interesting for understanding the story of the city! It covers a long history way of Strasbourg, explaining details and important things and people of the city and what have happend. Really is a great museum if you like history and doesn't not know the Strasbourg one. Although I really love it, I heard from a local that he didn't like it. So perhabs if you already know Strasbourg, there's no fun. Also, the museum has some interactice things, but they are not majority and also not so fun (exception to the end 20th forhead). Most of the museum are like 'classical' ones, with a lot of text. There are places to set while reading all the way.
  • Great museum, very informative! However don’t sit down too long or they tell you to get up and keep moving 😳😡Also - make sure you wear your backpack on your front side.
