The museum is the result of more than 40 years of collection by Michel Habsiger. In an eighteenth century barn, set in 350sq.metres there are more than 10,000 objects tracing the history of Gingerbread and other traditional sweets of yesteryear, also objects of folk art that accompanied rural life in Alsace.
- Alsatian Baptism Gifts
- Wooden utensils used in the making of Gingerbread up to the 19th century
- A traditional living room of the 18th century (the wood used was saved from the demolition of an old house)
- A wonderfull collection of glazed earthenware baking moulds: gugelhupf, pascal lambs, babies, lilies, hearts, crayfish, ducks, a bunch of grapes and many more.
- Old edible pictures to stick on the baked gingerbread.
- Carved wooden gingerbread moulds.
- A reconstruction of a traditional kitchen.
- Furniture from the 18th century.
- Beautiful Strasbourg earthware, tracing the Hannong dynasty.
- Tools from a beekeeper, a shoemaker and a carpenter as well as those from people working in the fields and from daily use.
It is the creation of this museum that allows us to continue working under the old methods and traditional craft in the studio to avoid industrialization.
