Yesterday’s afternoon we decided to make Colmar our last stop. We couldn’t even visit the whole place! Which was a pity, because Colmar looks beautiful.
And I’ve been told there is a “Little Venice” quite similar to Strasbourg’s “Little France”. But at 5.30 pm, we were ready to call it a day and get back! The cold and walking had me so tired that I fell asleep in the car.
Anyway, what we had time for was another couple (warm!) museums!
The first one was the Musée du jouet (Toys museum). I’ll be honest, I wasn’t very impressed by this place. The concept was clearly “a place for both children and people interested in the history of toys”, but the first two floors were just filled with toys displayed without context or a decent explanation
|Moreover, there was some major creepiness.|
Some stuff was pretty cool though.
And the second floor was a pretty amazing display of old model trains with a cycle of day and night going on. This place was worth the visit!
We got out, got lost (duh), had a coffee to warm us up, and met two boys who were… uhm… walking? Having a stroll? Practicing their jumping skills? Promoting a new product? I don’t know.
|Excuse me, WTF are you doing?|
Last, we visited the Musée Bartholdi, where the only highlight was a meeting with Vercingetorix. Seriously, there was some major lack of exhibition-displaying skills in Colmar.
