Toy horse museum

From the earliest times the children have played imagining to ride a horse and in the centuries the toy horses have taken various forms: a rocking chair or tricycle, stick or springs, made of wood or paperboard, tin or fabric.

With more than 650 toy horses made from the eighteenth century to this day, the Toy horse museum is the first and only museum dedicated to toy horse. Each horse has its own name that tells their story. The collection of the museum is constantly growing thanks to the donations of the visitors.

This museum is the only place where adults, thanks to their memories, return children, and the little ones dream with open eyes.

Since its revival in the 1990s the Concorso has improved year by year in every one of the benchmakes for these; the beauty of the setting, the impeccable hospitality, the efficient organisation, the programme at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este and Villa Erba, an enthusiastic audience, the public awareness in the international press and TV, and above all, the elegance, the originality and state of preservation of the precious automobiles participating in the event.

At the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este visitors breathe an air of authentic aristocracy, rather than the slightly commercial atmosphere of other events.
