When you hear "toy museum," you expect more than piles of old-timey toys in glass display cases in a series of cramped, overheated rooms. Possibly the worst 8 Euros (family ticket) we ever spent AND there's not even a patron bathroom! Those of you with small kids know what a hassle that can be. Two stars instead of one because... More

The museum is simple, nothing much, but it is cute and children might enjoy it. Surely could use some investment. Most of the material is translated to english.

I liked it a lot. The museum shows toys of different periods for boys and girls. And the best thing was the hall of Barbie dolls.

Visited the Toy Museum out of curiosity because it was conveniently located between our hotel and the Marienplatz. It's located in a tower. A small collection of toys seen from behind glass. There was a collection of Barbie and other types of dolls, mechanical windup toys, plastic soldiers, stuffed bears, etc. My partner and I were there on a Sunday... More

All the exhibits are carefully displayed behind glas. So do not expect your child will be happy. You cannot touch anything. If you can cope with the fact that this is a museum, you will like the place. It might get crowded and you better avoid hot days. There is an elevator.

This was my first time in such a museum. It did not look like it had a lot of variety, nor was it really worth the 4 euro. But at least we got inside to warm up for a while.

We nipped in here as i had heard there was a Barbie section and i am a big Barbie fan. The lady at reception was friendly and we had no problems with her. The museum is very small and there are a selection of different toys from Steiff bears to 1960's Barbies. It didn't take us long to walk round... More

This place should be free of charge and even then I am not sure I would recommend stopping by even though it is very conveniently located at Marienplatz. It does not look nice, atmosphere is bad and there is nothing much to see.

A nice break from the cold - we went to the Toy Museum with three kids and they seemed to enjoy looking at different toys from the past. My 3-year old son loved looking at the trains and the robots while my 7-year old daughter was fascinated by Barbie collection and Ken. Well, our toddler can't seemed to stop staring... More
