Great remedies for great ills

At the Écomusée d'Alsace, the house in Illkirch-Graffenstaden has been transformed into a real country pharmacy

This exhibition invites you to learn more about the evolution of healing methods, popular beliefs and medicinal plants in Alsace, using all five senses! A totally immersive exhibition for all the family!

Welcome to the house of a Jewish family

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.

The House of headdresses

An integral part of Alsatian costume, the headdress is a strong sign of identity. Through their headdresses, women indicate their territorial affiliation, express their personality, their social identity and even, in the second half of the 19th century, their religious beliefs and marital status. They wore their hats according to the occasion: everyday or Sunday, work in the fields, religious festivals, weddings, mourning, etc.

Through a selection of antique headdresses from the collections of the Écomusée d'Alsace, this exhibition in the Soufflenheim house reveals the diversity of Alsatian headdresses from the 19th and early 20th centuries. The delicate colours of the fabrics, the fine embroidery and the old-fashioned charm of the ribbons make these headdresses moving objects that bear witness to personal and regional histories.
