The Christmas exhibitions 2022 : "toys of yesterday and today"

At Christmas, I play!

Toys by the thousands, as Tino Rossi sang so well! 
Stuffed animals, dolls, cars, dinettes, games, enough to turn the head of our dear young heads.

Old wooden or metal toys that our parents and grandparents used to play with. 
Put away your cell phones for an enchanted interlude and let yourself be carried away by the magic of this fairy world that those under twenty years old cannot know.

Animals are not allowed in the Arsenal room. 

Come and admire the meticulous and original work of the creators. These artists are not lacking in imagination to personalize their objects: patterns, colors and materials are the precious and necessary ingredients for the creation of traditional Christmas toys.

From 25th November 2022 to 31th December 2022, everyday from 2pm to 6pm, and during the week-ends of the Christmas Market (friday, saturday and sunday 10am to 8pm). Health pass and mask required. The exhibition is closed on 25th and 26th December.
