Historical Museum of Strasbourg

Today, Strasbourg is considered the “capital of a reconciled Europe,” but it had to struggle through the Germanic Holy Roman Empire, the Royal Free City, the French Revolution, and a few assassinations before it earned that distinction. Open since 1920, the Historical Museum retraces these political, economic, and cultural years through paintings and military artifacts. A more recent addition to the building, which actually served as the city’s slaughterhouse in 1587, highlights the period from 1800 to when the Council of Europe was created in 1949, including Napoléon’s three visits.
