The shop is full of colour and starting the long haul to Christmas. Staff are charming, helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the exhibits throughout.

We visited this museum on a whim, because we had nothing else planned that morning, yet it proved a wonderful experience! We hadn't previously heard of the artist Hansi, but he used his art to aid in German resistance in an incredible way. We were...More

Waltz works are very good. He was not only a good graphic designer, but a patriot too. His children paintings are lovely. A lot of his works are seen on the streets of Colmar

The art of Jean-Jacque Waltz, Hansi, is charming, capturing the traditional dress and culture of the Alsatian area. Waltz, Hansi, used his art to poke fun at the Germans. His story is told in the museum which also has a terrific gift shop.

All around Colmar one sees glimpses of Hansi’s wonderful artwork. However, what I really liked about the museum was how it showed his patriotic spirit during the time of German occupation. His art showed a cartoon like quality that glorified things Alsatian, and poked fun...More

We loved learning about "Oncle Hansi" and found his art to be totally charming. One comes away knowing more about the region.

We stayed in Colmar several days, but this museum hadn't come up in our research. I stumbled across it only because I saw information about a special exhibition at the museum by an Alsatian pottery artist posted on a Colmar on-line events calendar. The first...More
