Bartholdi had many talents including his metalurgy and skill as an architect. The house and museum give insight into his character and skill.

The information booklet the museum provides DOES come in other languages. However, the curator does a poor job of turning the family home into a showcase of Bartholdi's life. The first floor hosts busts and some Jewish art, but does little to connect the dots...More

This little museum contained odd bits and pieces. The only display in this museum worth viewing was the upside down room. China and other bits are secured to the ceiling. The room was a bit dark, so if you have a light on your camera,...More

In Colmar, we visited the Musee Bartholdi, birthplace of Auguste Bartholdi, known best for his sculpture "Liberty Enlightening the World" (ie The Statue of Liberty.) First, let me admit that we didn't get the audio guide. The clerk handed us a sheaf of papers in...More
