The Story of Aircraft - Colmar

Boarding now! For a marvellous adventure at the Musée du Jouet de Colmar. From 16 October 2019 to 20 September 2020, the temporary exhibition The Story of Aircraft offers a journey through the fascinating world of aeronautics through mythical and unusual aircraft toys.
Witnesses to an epoch and to technical and technological advances, the toys, presented chronologically, retrace the history of civil aviation.
From 1908 and the first aviation pioneers to 1976 and Concorde, the exhibition is a guaranteed ticket to adventure and travel.
Thanks to a private collection of more than 200 toys, your path through the exhibition is an invitation to discover an age of inventors, adventurers and heroes. The opportunity to take on board the fact that this major invention of the 20th century was followed step by step by toy manufacturers.
From flying machines to airships, taking in the first "mad aviators" such as Farman or Blériot, then past adventurers such as Mermoz or Saint-Exupéry and finishing up with the boom in air transport, this exhibition is the opportunity to take a three-stage journey of discovery of commercial air transport.
An amazing and fun visit for the passionate and the merely curious to dream and let yourself be carried away by the major epic of aviation. Sets in the form of small Playmobil vignettes punctuate your path round the exhibition and there is a children's games book for all budding pilots.
