I visited this museum today and I enjoyed it. They have four room full of toys, some of which are from the 1800's. I really liked the teddy bears and the story of the lady who started making plush toys even though she was in a wheelchair. There is also a Barbie collection which I loved. This museum is small...

Not just for children! Brilliant little museum. Great displays. There is a lift inside so don't be put off with the stairs leading up to the ticket office. Well worth a visit.

Okay this museum is only 4 euros for an adult but even at that rate it is not worth it.... its full of cramped glass cages that seem as though they just filled them to fill the space.. we spent about 10 minutes there, if u like good museums this isnt the place for you.

This museum is very small, it is basically four tiny rooms over cramed with toys with very little explanation of where or when the toy where used or produce. There is also no washroom for customers and at four euros for somthing that can be seen in less than 20 mins it is rather over prices

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.
