Note: the musuem closes for a midday break. The museum shows models of several sculptures that Barthodi did. One display showed how one of his statues went thru several stages - from the crudest clay thru the final product.

This museum is in the family home of Bartholdi who designed USA's Statue of Liberty Some rooms are preserved with period furniture however I consider that there are much more interesting things to do in Colmar. It is way to find due to the statue in front of the building.

My wife and I visited this museum on a Sunday afternoon and were entranced by the collection of Bartholdi's sculptures and the models for his sculptures. Because there are many models, photographs, and memorabilia related to the Statue of Liberty, the museum is of special interest to Americans.

This museum is only for one artist and his life and work but a great one. His creation of the Statue of Liberty was his most noteworthy but his works were many. Faces especially interesting

6€ per person, the exhivition itself was boring but i would say the money was worth planting me with knowledge of who built and when the statue of liberty.

If you have spare time, you can see how Bartholdi lived. (Quite well, it would appear). There is a collection of Jewish items on the ground floor.

I didn't really know what to expect, didn't realize how many other things he'd done. Museum would be better if there were also signage in German and English.

Bartholdi's family house is now a museum where you can follow the project he had to build the Statue of Liberty. A lot of pictures, prints and models are showed in the nice rooms where Barthodi's paintings are also exposed. Many documents explain what was the philosophy of this artist who wanted to leave a trace in the world at... More

It is a very cute town house where french sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi was born and lived his early life. He is most famous for designing Statue of Liberty in NYC. There few sculptures, designs and nice period rooms to see.

However, I would have expected more explanation on the building of the Statue of Liberty and Lion de Belfort. As it is, it is a collection of photos, some with explanations, most not...
