Interesting to see early designs for the Statue of Liberty.

This is a very small but worthwhile musuem. The house is particularly worth seeing. There are a few oddities thrown in, like a video of Disco music. Note that the museum is closed... read more

We've visited this city many times in the past and thought this was the time to pay this museum a visit. We were all quite disappointed. From the start on it gave us a very amateuristic impression. We had expected a lot more, especially from the Statue of Liberty part on the top floor. Very "minimal" and much below our... More

I agree with a previous reviewer that this museum has promise, but doesn't yet live up to it. There were a number of issues: - The museum closes for two hours over lunch, which is okay, but we arrived exactly at 1400 hrs (the re-opening time) to find the door shut with a notice in front of it. We wandered... More

We visited Bartholdi museum because we had a few hours before catching the train. The breadth of his work is amazing. I knew about his most famous work (Statue of Liberty) but had no idea about the many works he has around the world. Very interesting. Highly recommended!"

This is a very small but worthwhile musuem. The house is particularly worth seeing. There are a few oddities thrown in, like a video of Disco music. Note that the museum is closed from noon to 2 pm. We waited around and had a bite nearby. Not sure it is worth a long wait however.

We had just returned through France from three weeks in Italy. What a change from the somewhat repetitive menus. Everything sounding and looking as though it had been delivered from a local supplier that same day. Regional wine not to everyone's taste, and the prices about 80% higher than Italy, but a welcome return, nonetheless.

This museum is dedicated to the life and works of Bartholdi; the sculptor most known for the Statue of Liberty. It's set in his family home where several of the original rooms are preserved with period furniture. There's also a room dedicated to the Jewish heritage of the area. The museum includes several casts and models of Bartholdi's work, and... More

We did not know of this museum prior to going to Colmar and it may be only the bad weather of the day that tempted us to go inside the museum. Inside we were surprised - maybe because of our ignorance - to learn what master pieces Auguste Bartholdi had been the father to and not the least to "Statue... More

We spent a couple hours at the museum and found it very interesting and educational. What a wonderful opportunity to visit the home of the man who created the Statue of Liberty. There are also many other wonderful pieces of art he produced. I was particularly interested in the sculptures of George Washington and Lafayette as well as some of... More

This museum is also the house where Bartholdi was born 1834. On the ground floor you will find models for his public monuments and on the first floor rooms from his Paris flat. There are also reduced scale copies of some of his monuments. The second floor exhibits featuring the Statue of Liberty with models, drawing, paintings and the history... More

Excellent museum showing the live and creations of Bartholdi including the Statue of Liberty which he designed and built in Paris before it was given to the US. Very well presented exhibits.
