Quick visit

Came for a quick visit and enjoyed the toy collections. Lots of signs included an English translation, and the place has minimal crowds . Great for a 45 minute break in your day.

Four small rooms on four floors connected by an elevator trip up and a tiny spiral staircase on the trip down made it a less than enjoyable visit. The entry fee wasn't very high, but the time spent seemed wasted.

This museum is hidden away in a tower facing the Marienplatz and I think most people miss it. Entrance is only 4 Euro every level of the tower is packed with display cases and explanations, most of which are in German and English. Only downside is that i wish there were more to see as it was fascinating.

At the beginning of July 2015 my family and I were in Munich, Germany for some hours. Of course, we visited the impressive old town. As a present for my grandchildren we visited the Toy Museum (SPIELZEUGMUSEUM) in the Gothic Tower on Marienplatz. What an interesting collection! Dear adults do not miss this place in Munich – so many toys... More

I visited the museum with my 15 year old son. We loved it. It was facinating to see all the toys from the past and to read about them. The toy soldiers reminded me of my collection I had as a boy and the intricate doll's houses and displays were great to see. I have read other reviews and would... More

My 3 year old son and I both very much enjoyed this. We took the lift to the 5th floor and worked our way down. He loved the trains in particular, I loved the old toys on wheels that I remember from my childhood, as well as the cool robot collection. Only 4 euros for me, free for him. Cheap... More

It was €3 to get in, so not really expensive, but it only had three small rooms. Interesting toys, but was expecting a bit more.

Although we had the exact address, we had tough time to find the museum. The entrance is under the gate that leads to Marienplatz (from Tal street). Climbing the claustrophobic staircase made us curious about this place. Unfortunately, we discovered a poor collection of dolls and toys. The place looks worn out and tired. Not surprisingly, entrance fee is very... More

There is a little child in everyone of us and that is a good reason to visit this place. Perhaps more as an exhibition than a museum, but is is nice too see with what kind of toys children have been playing a long time ago.

This sweet little jewel box of a museum is well worth the visit. Located in the tower of the old city hall on the marienplatz, the small but extensively curated museum is crammed into small rooms on several floors of the tower, connected by both elevator and winding and steep stone stairs - very atmospheric! The mostly tin toys are... More
