The toy museum: a visit for children and parents alike

    • The Toy Museum is un picturesque and timeless place, installed in an old fortified gatehouse dating from the XIVth century.
    • It offers many surprises, especially for children: teddy bears from another era, puppets, porcelain dolls, dinners, rocking horses, cars, electric trains and board games from another time.
    • In our opinion, the highlight of the visit is the attic with its network of electric trains.
    • Animations and play areas are offered to children on the tour route.
    • The collections evolve and new objects are regularly presented to the public.
