The museum has a number of interesting archaeology displays that are relevant to the Alsace region and it is worth a look. The displays have a wide range of topics and periods.

This museum gives a good overview of the archaeology of the region from the Mesolithic to the Roman era. Combine this museum with a visit to the Musee historique de la Ville de Strasbourg and the Musee Alsacien to get a sense of the earliest history and most recent social customs. Good value if you buy the day museums pass.

Nice collection of artifacts collected over the years from excavations in the area surrounding the cathedral and greater Alsace. English translations however can be lacking. There are general translations, but many of the detailed descriptions or information on individual items were missing during my visit.

A sterling example of a Gothic Cathedral perhaps the template for hundreds of similar Cathedrals around Europe.

This museum is inside the Mohan palace and is fairly large display of archeology artifacts and displays dating back to prehistoric times through to iron age and to the middle ages. There are free leaflets in English available to help you pick out the highlights. Good museum showing many many archeology items. Toilets on site.

We bought a day ticket for €12 per adult and this was the first of the city museums we visited. Although some of the displays were a bit dated, I thought that this was in some ways something of a plus - it didn't distract from the exhibits. It covered everything from the stone age to the middle ages, with... More

The audio guide here doesn't work very well and having to put the location numbers each time is tiresome especially when a lot of them don't actually work. Otherwise it was an interesting museum with plenty of exhibits.

The presentation could indeed be better and more interesting, but the collection is absolutely fascinating! Would recommend to anyone into Prehistoric and Roman history.

The collection of archeological material was extensive and the explanatory notes were helpful. However, the presentation of the material could be improved with the use of more audio-visual aids and better locational maps.
