Although Tomi Ungerer made lots of illustrations for children's books which are terrific, he did plenty of erotic drawings as well. In fact, the temporary exhibit was very erotic so I just recommend checking what's being shown before you bring your kids. Or you can just visit the ground floor which focuses on his more innocent work. I went because... More

Being a cold and wet day in Strasbourg I decided to explore some museums and art galleries. There was plenty of parking close by which made for easy access. You buy your entrance ticket in a cute little building that is separate from the museum, which is nice, but having left your scarf, coat, gloves etc in a locker you... More

I didn't expect anything of this, and it turned out to be a fantastic discovery of an artist and author.

Had a pleasant time reviewing each scamp/sketch. He's so comical, smart and there were times, some work made me miss the advertising. He's just brilliant!

I'm not a fan of the genre drawings exposed and I not liked. The museum are two small floors with drawings and two videos which is difficult to see because there is few chairs to sit. I did not pay entry (because the first Sunday of each month is free) but I think expensive for what it offers visitors.

Surprising, really, for a museum dedicated to one of the most beloved illustrators of children's books in the world, but they really don't seem to want children, even well behaved ones. First they insisted we leave the pushchair behind at the entrance, even though the whole museum has excellent accessibility (for adults obviously). But worse was to come inside from... More

I really enjoyed this museum and found myself laughing out loud at some of the illustrations. The exhibits really attest to the fact that Tomi Ungerer is a daring, very skillful and colorful (meant more than one way!) artist. It is true that some parents may not approve his illustrations for children's books, but it helps to hear his view... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. I had used Tomi's picture books with children but was amazed at the diversity of his work. Well worth a visit in central Strasbourg.

Great mix of political cartoons, children's illustrations, and in the ground floor some erotica. Political cartoons, much of it about the relationship of France and Germany were very interesting. Top two floors suitable for any ages but some parents might not be comfortable with children on the ground floor.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It's in a lovely building, with an all-white interior. On the entry floor are Tomi Ungerer's works for children. There are a few videos, copies of his books in display cabinets, and framed drawings on the walls. There are also three-dimensional toys based on his characters. Kids would enjoy this floor. On the first floor... More
