Lonely Planet review
Trace Strasbourg’s history from its beginnings as a Roman military camp called Argentoratum at this engaging museum housed in a 16th-century slaughterhouse. Highlights include a famous painting of the first-ever performance of La Marseillaise, France’s stirring national anthem, which – despite its name – was written in Strasbourg in 1792; a 1:600-scale model of the city, created in the 1720s to help Louis XV visualise the city’s fortifications; and a Gutenberg Bible from 1485. Kids can try on medieval-style knights’ helmets and touch ancient pots and 18th-century cannons.
