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

You are better off wandering around Marienplatz than wasting your time and money in this God-forsaken place 😕

Although 4 euro is not too much compared with other museums in Germany, it's still more than I would pay for this small collection of old toys. I feel like I can see (and even buy) some of the toys in a flea market. Nothing really caught my interest except for a good collection of old barbie dolls and a... More

The ticket was only 4 euros, but I wouldn't go back if they paid me. A toy museum should be colourfull, happy, enjoyable. This looks like a prison on 4 floors, gathering the most horrifying toys you can imagine from centuries ago (some of them dismembered), piled up behind glass casings. Nothing to buy in the gift shop but some... More
