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... read 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

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

In an old tower next to marienplatz, we visited with the family, it is over 5 levels high we used the stairs instead of the lift, it wasn't expensive either, it was lovely to see all the toys the kids loved to see all the old teddys we were glad we went to see it

Too small a museum and the collections are crammed without detailed explanation, not to mention they are only in German. Surprised to find out there is no washrooms inside.

In an old, narrow stone tower next to Marienplatz. The front door is under an overhang. A good place for the family. Most signs and labels are in German and English. It is 5 levels high and there is an elevator but most people climb the spiral staircase. There is a huge number of toys and there is a lot... More

It is inside an old tower, just next to Marienplatz (main square of Munich). The pros: you just need around an hour to see it (if you take your time to see all the little toys), the tower is an old nice building and has a charming touch since every small floor is one exhibition, there is a lift (elevator)...
