Until 27th of October 2019
The illustrator Tomi Ungerer was a passionate toys collector. The first item of his collection, a small mechanical boat was presented to him in 1960 in New York. Than, for about 40 years he kept collecting thousands of toys – old and new – and a part of his collection was donated to the museums of the city of Strasbourg. Some of them are permanently displayed at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Tomi Ungerer Museum. The focus of this exhibition is put on one of the major themes of Ungerer’s collection : the means of transport. Over a hundred objects are presented : cars, planes, boats, trains, trucks and plenty of unusual vehicles.
