  • Good excuse to return to Colmar ... Make the BARTHOLDI Museum; closed doors this time, but we must not miss it! See you next time, then! (Control opening hours)

  • It is a small museum that renovated the author's house of the Statue of Liberty. Sculptures and paintings were on display. The courtyard in front of the museum is also a good atmosphere.

  • Small house of where August Bartholdi was born and grown up. Many things upstairs got nothing to do with Bartholdi family though and just represent some alsasien pieces of art of later times. As to the works of Bartholdi - they are impressive enough. But many have just few different copies of various sizes. So all in all it's not that much. No other language but French on exhibition, so if you are a foreign tourist, be ready to understand nothing and just try to have your own imagination of what this or that is. Closed from Dec 29 until March 1. Entrance 6 Euro.
  • What a wonderful place. It is a small museum and you won't find a lot of English there but it is definitely worth a visit. The fee is minimal. You will find different rooms that honor his family, especially his mother. Look close and see if you see a resemblance to the Statue of Liberty. Bartholdi was honored by the United States in many ways that we discovered in this charming old house that was his residence at one time in Colmar.
