The Écomusée d'Alsace opened its doors to the public on 1 June 1984. It was inaugurated shortly afterwards by Jack Lang, Minister of Culture. When it opened, the museum had about twenty buildings, some of which were unfinished, but it was already a success! It welcomed 75,000 visitors in its first year. Everyone encouraged the association to continue the adventure. The Alsatians then donated thousands of objects to the Écomusée d'Alsace, constituting the beginning of the interior fittings of the buildings: furniture, clothes, documents, photographs, etc.
