Long Description:
The toy museum of Colmar is located in the historic town center not far from the town hall. It opened 1993 in a converted former cinema.

It houses a large collection of yesterday's toys on three floors.

From their website: "On the ground floor there are three different areas.

One is dedicated to temporary exhibitions. The other presents clockwork figures and animated objects associated with the circus world. The most remarkable room is undoubtedly where Cinderella’s carriage sits, pulled by four mechanized white horses.

In the centre there is a game area for young and old. Wooden toys, puzzles, building blocks, miniature models and a small merry-go-round are all available for the visitors.
On the 1st floor there are two display areas.

The first is just for dolls and their accessories. Visitors can marvel at old dolls from countries all over the world and objects associated with the everyday life of Barbie©. The second area has miniature cars, Liebherr machines, motorbikes, boats and small soldiers. One window is also reserved just for board games and building games.

The second floor has scale train models with a huge railway network covering 120 m²."
