An open-air village museum, Ecomusee d'Alsace invites you into 73 historic Alsatian-style buildings filled with 40,000 items donated by enthusiastic Alsatians. Each house includes furniture, items from daily life, clothing, tools, and agricultural machinery from the mid 19th century up to the 1950s. Peek into life in an Alsatian village, observing a teacher in the old schoolhouse, a farmhouse with old farming machinery, and a kitchen with a traditional wood-burning stove. Listen to audio commentary in English, French, or German at 36 kiosks scattered throughout the village, describing the region's history, daily life, and the items on display. You can visit the apiary, milk cows, watch artisans create crafts, see an old-fashioned mill in operation, and smell fresh-baked traditional goods. Workshops throughout the season feature artisans making local crafts using traditional methods. Lastly, be sure to visit "Eden Palladium," a collection of antique carousels and carnival attractions that still function.

Great place to spend the whole day with family and friends outdoors. Lots of various activities and things to learn and try. Majority of expanations are translated to German and English. Animators are behaving so natural that you get a feeling you really arrived back in time.
Well presented but no guides in English and alot of the push button information stations were not working. No cafe on site so unless you take a picnic you will go hungry/thirsty. The lady in the cooking house was very good and we tried various pieces of "old" cooked food and she was very friendly.
