The toy museum: a visit for children and parents alike

    • The Toy Museum is apicturesque and timeless place, installed in a former fortified gatehouse dating from the 14th century
    • It offers many surprises, especially for children: teddy bears from another era, puppets, porcelain dolls, dinner sets, rocking horses, cars, electric trains and board games from another time.
    • In our opinion, the highlight of the visit is the attic with its electric train system.
    • Activities and games are offered to children on the tour route
    • The collections evolve and new objects are regularly presented to the public
