You will absolutely love this museum. Tomi Ungerer's grand-father was a clockmaker; he built the clock inside the cathedral.

It's a splendid museum devoted to illustration on an international scale and of course, the works bequeathed to it by Ungerer himself. If you admire his work or illustration in general, it's a must.

I love all the collections very much, all those for children, for Strasbourg Cathedral lovers, and paintings of Kamasutra. I know Tomi Ungerer has more interesting paintings to show, so it is pity that the museum is not bigger.

I didn't know much about Tomi Ungerer when we went, but came out very impressed by his art. I don't believe I'm saying this, but it needs a shop where you can purchase his books. It is a beautiful collection in a excellent setting. There is some erotica, but that's just Tomi...you get all of him. I'm sure most kids... More

If you like strips, this is a must do in Strasbourg. Ungerer is a very funny drawing artist. The collection wil take about a one hour visit.

I liked the design of the museum but the art was just not my fancy. I liked the presentation of the museum and the staff was helpful to make sure I didn't miss anything. I would suggest about 40 minutes to see everything unless you are very much a Tomi fan and in this case there are some videos and... More

Although this is a museum of a famous children's book illustrator I wouldn't recommend you take children on the top or basement floor, which only leaves you with the main floor. It is a small museum and much of the art is just quick sketches that are untitled which gives you the impression that they were not meant for showing... More

I love Ungerer's children's books and there is almost nothing here of those. There was a special display of his adult erotic work - when that isn't on, I have no idea how they possibly justify the cost.

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
