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 painting of the first-ever performance of La Marseillaise, France’s national anthem, which, despite its name, was written in Strasbourg in 1792; a 1:600-scale model, created in the 1720s to help Louis XV visualise the city’s fortifications; and a Gutenberg Bible from 1485.
