The collection is quite interesting but I found that the explanations were lacking. You want to know more and you can't. But then I went during the "Journées du Patrimoine" so maybe audio-tours were not available under such circumstances.

The museum has a number of interesting archaeology displays that are relevant to the Alsace region and it is worth a look. The displays have a wide range of topics and periods.

Nice collection of artifacts collected over the years from excavations in the area surrounding the cathedral and greater Alsace. English translations however can be lacking. There are general translations, but many of the detailed descriptions or information on individual items were missing during my visit.

The audio guide here doesn't work very well and having to put the location numbers each time is tiresome especially when a lot of them don't actually work. Otherwise it was an interesting museum with plenty of exhibits.

The presentation could indeed be better and more interesting, but the collection is absolutely fascinating! Would recommend to anyone into Prehistoric and Roman history.
