Bartholdi designed the Statue of Liberty and many other famous sculptures in France and the US. We found this by accident while in Colmar and it is definitely worth an hour or two.

Quite an exhaustive and exhausting collection of his work. Amazing someone could produce so much in one lifetime. It is worth going to see some of the local pieces by him after you have visited the museum.

This is a place that any American visiting Colmar cannot missed it... everybody knows how iconic is the Statue of Liberty. The building itself is the natal home of Bartholdi and houses sculpture and other art pieces; some rooms were recreated as per his living days, historical information from him and obviously, his works. I was expecting a big room... More

Well worth the nomonal admission fee. A chance to learn about the artist who was the creator and primary force behind the Statue of Liberty. The statue was not a gift from the French government to the US people. See also: Liberty's Tourch, a new book on the history of the Statue of Liberty and Bertholdi's driving creative and financial...

This was a complete surprise and an unexpected delight. I rate this the top site at Colmar to see. (Granted I am an American and live in NYC). The history and works of Bartholdi are inspiring and interesting... What an accomplished artist this man was.... Painter, sculptor, designer. I had no idea. The models, tools, pictures and stories behind the... More

I hadn't heard of Bartholdi until my wife suggested we go to the museum located in his former home. Bartholdi was an accomplished sculptor who also designed the Statue of Liberty. He had quite an ego but his talent is without question.

This small museum, focuses on the life and work of Bartholdi, the artist and sculptor best known for creating the Statue of Liberty. Like many reviewers, we felt that descriptions of the works and photos in English might be a good idea, especially in light of the subject matter. We still had a great experience. The sculptures and photos give... More

Auguste Bartholdi created the Statue of Liberty of which a copy stands at the entrance to Colmar. The museum gives you the idea of Bartholdi's genius as a sculptor and shows how he developed his ideas. He was the creator of many more famous works and the museum helps you grasp the true scope of his talent.
