The Museé alsacien (Alsatian museum) is one of the three museums of Haguenau, France. Like its older and much larger counterpart in Strasbourg, it is dedicated to local, mostly rural customs, furniture, and folk art.[2]

The museum was established in 1972 when the ethnographic collection of the Musée historique de Haguenau was separated from the rest of the collections in order to reorganise the existing space, it was moved into the former chancery (French: chancellerie), a late 15th-century building.[3]
