Musée du Jouet – Colmar, France

Located in Colmar, France, the Musée du Jouet showcases a collection of more than 1,000 toys dating from the 19th century to today. The museum is housed in a former cinema and located in the center of the picturesque city. Permanent exhibits are spread over three floors and include toys of various categories and eras, including model trains, dolls, action figures, pedal cars, board games, construction sets, and scientific toys.

The main hall offers up a large LEGO display of a town that is maintained and regularly updated by Fanabriques, a local association for enthusiasts of the popular construction toy. Another major attraction is an extensive train network that runs throughout the entire second floor.

The museum also hosts a series of rotating temporary exhibits, scheduled workshops, and concerts. Child-friendly fun areas such as giant board games, puppet shows, and video game consoles round out the spectacles.
