Come visit this ethnographic museum! You will understand the physical evolution of the region from the Ice Age and will discover many animals of the endangered local fauna.

In a beautiful 16th-century mansion, formerly a Turenne school, you can find the Natural History and Ethnography Museum in Colmar. The museum explains the geophysical evolution of the region from the Ice Age and tells you about various endangered local species. The display is set in a room recreating the atmosphere of the Vosges Mountains and the Rhine plain. A sumptuous collection of invertebrates will make you dream of travelling to exotic lands, as will the ethnographical collections devoted to Ancient Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa in this museum unique in its kind.
