The Écomusée d’Alsace
New exhibitions are held every year in the Écomusée d’Alsace.
Push open the front door of the small Rixheim house and inside you’ll be able to experience how a typical Alsatian Jewish family lived in the country in the early 20th century. The exhibition has been staged in partnership with the region’s Alsatian and Israeli consistories.
The house reveals how the family went about their daily tasks, their crafts and culinary traditions and explains certain aspects of their lives by stories handed down through the generations.
When Ungersheim joined the Transition Town movement, it undertook to implement 21 actions for raising local awareness of ecological transition and for drawing up an ecological resilience plan.
These 21 actions for the 21st-century are to be performed through a participatory process and are designed to gear up autonomously for climate change and for the post-oil era. You can see the full list of the actions being performed in Ungersheim at the entrance to the museum.
