Wife and I really enjoyed seeing the amount of detail and overall workmanship involved in the many dioramas. Significant span of French history illustrated. Waterloo battle scene was outstanding!

I wasn't expecting much from this visit but was amazed by the amount of details there was. We found some funny scenes too, including the "Painter & his naked model" one which was hilarious. Maybe a bit pricey though.

A great place to keep the kids entertained. A step back into History- and childhood for some- as this place is full of toys- in particular toy soldiers!

Comprehensive selection of models from various periods in history mostly Napoleonic. Varying degrees of quality but very interesting to a model maker. Well worth the €3 visit. Gentleman in attendance very friendly and helpful.

This is a small treasure of a museum, especially if you're interested in toy soldiers. The collection is fairly comprehensive with an emphasis on those of French manufacture. Well worth a visit

Okay, I (the male of the party) am quite into miniatures, so this museum was always going to tick the box for me. It is inexpensive and features a staggering variety of military miniatures in various styles and from various periods. Its strength is in...More
