Musée de la Poupée et du Jouet Ancien

Museum (WAMBRECHIES)


The fragrance of fairy-tales and sweet nostalgia breathes through this museum, with its sumptuous, original collection of dolls: there are all kinds, starting with porcelain dolls from late 19th century and ending with the first Barbies and their distinctively 60s style. There are also electric trains and other toy cars that take you straight back to your childhood, along with a few toy soldiers, boats, planes, you name it! The visit ends with a permanent exhibition entitled "the toys are off to war", showcasing a series of scenes in which the major events of the Great War are re-enacted by toys.
