Musée de l'Archeologie, Strasbourg

Aspiring merely at some respite from the blighting cold and ongoing blizzard (I am hardly exaggerating at all, I assure you!) we were agreeably surprised to find a vast, well-stocked and nicely displayed museum in an 18th century, baroque hotel particulier.

Exhibits ranged from the paleolithic (or whatever?) up to the recent dig-out of a group of World War One German soldiers, immured in an underground mining gallery.
We stayed longer than expected and when we were done, so was the snowfall.
