The Musée alsacien (Alsatian museum) is a museum in Strasbourg in the Bas-Rhin department of France. It opened on 11 May 1907 and is dedicated to all aspects of (mostly rural) daily life in pre-industrial and early industrial Alsace, it contains over 5000 exhibits and is notable for the reconstruction of the interiors of several traditional houses.[1] It also features a rich collection of artifacts documenting the everyday life of Alsatian Jews.

The museum is located in several Renaissance timber framed houses on the Quai Saint-Nicolas, on the banks of the Ill river.[1] In 1917 it was bought by the city of Strasbourg.

Another, smaller, Musée alsacien exists in the city of Haguenau, 30 kilometers north of Strasbourg.
