The Hansi museum is a magnificent building that was designed to look like an Alsatian town, taken directly from one of Hansi's well-known works. Hansi was a French artist with Alsatian ancestry who was also an activist in support of France. He became well-known for his charming paintings, some of which portrayed criticism of the Germans living in that era.

The Village of Hansi and its Museum can be found just in front of the internationally renowned 'Maison des Têtes.' Come on in and learn about the life and times of the legendary artist Jean-Jacques Waltz, sometimes known as 'Hansi,' as you explore the city of Colmar.

This watercolorist has also done a lot of watercolor drawings in Colmar and the surrounding area. You may learn about his work in the Hansi Museum and Village, where you can also indulge in some retail therapy at the museum's souvenir and gift stores.
