The museum's lively and attractive tour allows visitors to discover 9 centuries of Strasbourg's existence through 1700 works on display, more than 9 playful and 9 digital devices.
The History Museum of the City of Strasbourg was founded in 1920 in a historic building, the former butchers' shops, built in 1587-1588, and reopened in 2013 fully renovated.
The museum shows the history of the city from the Middle Ages to the foundation of the European institutions and offers a historical and playful adventure. Through the collections, it questions the past, invites the public to reflect on living conditions in all eras and offers interactions with the works. The centrepiece of the museum is the famous plan relief from 1727, commissioned by Louis XV.
A visit to the museum is worth it alone! With an extensive cultural programme that includes guided tours and events such as "Vis ma ville" and "Fenêtre sur cour", the museum reaffirms its role as an urban, civic and contemporary museum.
