Waltz works are very good. He was not only a good graphic designer, but a patriot too. His children paintings are lovely. A lot of his works are seen on the streets of Colmar

The art of Jean-Jacque Waltz, Hansi, is charming, capturing the traditional dress and culture of the Alsatian area. Waltz, Hansi, used his art to poke fun at the Germans. His story is told in the museum which also has a terrific gift shop.

All around Colmar one sees glimpses of Hansi’s wonderful artwork. However, what I really liked about the museum was how it showed his patriotic spirit during the time of German occupation. His art showed a cartoon like quality that glorified things Alsatian, and poked fun...More

I can't comment on the museum, but the shop is cavernous and sells all the souvenirs you could ever want.

Museum tells the interesting history of Hansi, his life & artwork. His real name is Jean Jacques Waltz and his artwork is very folk art like.

Small museum but an interesting introduction to Hansi and His works. Worth a visit while in Colmar. Shop attached to museum has quite an extensive range of related products.
