Exploring the science of earthquakes and terrestrial magnetism.The Museum of Seismology was set up in 1900 in one of the buildings of the Strasbourg University complex constructed by the Germans. It was designed as a seismograph station when Alsace was occupied after the Franco-Prussian war (1870-71). The collection includes 18 instruments showing the evolution of seismometers from the early 19th century to the 1950's and a collection of instruments to measure the earth's magnetic field, the largest collection of such instruments gathered in one place.
