Located in a former cinema, the Toy Museum 'Musée du Jouet' welcomes young and old in the heart of Colmar's city-centre. The museum presents a collection of toys from the 19th century to today. Throughout a theme-oriented visit, you'll discover all these toys which marked your childhood. Old teddy-bears to the first Barbie(C) dolls to video games, Playmobil(R), miniatures, robots or little trains, the toys and games exhibited come from all over the world and belong to numerous generations of children. The major museum attraction is a train network which runs over the entire second floor.

Quite a small museum with an interesting collection, suitable for all ages. Exhibits range from model steam trains and layouts, historic toys and games, through "collectables" of the 80`s and 90`s, to modern day. There is an extensive interactive play area where youngsters and families...More

Reasonably priced museum at 5euro for entry. Not a massive museum but worth looking round. Took approx 1.5hr for us. Interesting. Note all info is in French but as we can read French that was ok

Having travelled to Colmar from Freiburg for the day and decided against paying what seemed like an exorbitant €13 entry to Unterlinden Museum, this place was a lovely surprise. We finished our round of the city here and spent a good hour and a half...More

Knew this would be small by the other reviews we read before we visited. Knew it would be good with small children. However, was not expecting such rudeness from some of the staff. Was expecting a full model railway. It's smaller than others we saw...More
