This is a toy museum for adults as well as children. The hand crafted toys are works of art and represent a wide variety of Mexican crafts many if which are so labor-intensive that they will be lost in future generations. Bright, beautiful and incredibly creative and intricate - a must-see stop during any visit to SMA.

This is a small museum worth the visit with a variety of toys and masks. The collection is varied. It is right up from the Jardin.

Had the privilege of attending the opening for La Esquina Mexican Toy Museum. What a beautiful building and an outstanding collection of Mexican toys. The displays are incredible. We weren't really sure about going to a Toy Museum but it totally astounded us. If you have the chance definitely have a look through this beautiful museum.

Do not miss this! Everything about it is delightful. The architecture and displays were subtle and professional, allowing the amazing variety and arrangement of toys to shine. The roof deck has splendid views. What a great setting it would be for a small cafe!

A new museum, well thought out with gorgeous displays of varied types of toys all housed revolving around the architecture of an old building with exposed stone and skylights. The shop has some nice Mexican crafts and after traveling, we realized well priced too.

This amazing collection of toys and miniatures from all over Mexico is beautifully displayed and offers children and adults a glimpse of the charming toys made in Mexico. Many of these are antiques, but for the most part the toys are contemporary. It is a charming spot and has a great little store selling some of the toys seen in... More

For anyone with a creative streak, you've got to visit this place! Loads of hand made toys, very well laid out and organized, lots and lots to see. Four floors of artwork from hand woven straw to hand made dolls. Miniatures that were incredible, so much detail in these tiny pieces. Entrance fee is practically nothing! They are closed Mon-Tues...

A surprising museum, devoted to toys but also what we decided was more folk art than toys. Beautifully crafted and whimsical artifacts from all over Mexico were worth seeing for lovers of such creations. Nicely displayed.
