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

Four of us spent around an hour in this 'museum' just off Marienplatz and each of us found something that thrilled us. Yes its small and is crammed in to 4 small rooms each on a different floor but it does have some charming exhibits. If you don't like tin-toys and children's paraphernalia from way back, then don't bother. We... More

You can see everything in lesa than an hour. Everything is in German. There's not much talking about the toys, not even really old or cool toys/dolls to see. I don't recommend. London's toy museum is very very very nicer.

I found the museum very interesting, focusing primarily on antique and vintage toys from Europe and America. It is small and feels more like a very intimate collection than a museum. There are several floors of exhibits, access to each floor is through a steep spiral staircase at the centre. I'm going to say that this museum is catered more... More

Although there were some interesting toys on show, there wasn't any information on them. The 2 rooms that we went in were small and the display was a bit disappointing. I really did expect a toy museum and this was not it! We probably spent 20 minutes in here max and that was stretching it.

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...
