Well worth a visit to see this place and imagine how it was in the 1930's. A must for history lovers but I could image it to be of little interest to someone if not.

A very nice collection of mainly german produced toys from the 17th century untill the moderm times. The highlight of the exhibition is the giant railway model on the 3rd floor, which, unfortunately, operates once a month

I used the address provided and it brought me directly to a parking garage! How lucky. The museum offered a 5 museum family pass for €13 so we bought that and also visited the industrial museum. It started off a little slow for my five year old. However, on each floor there were video demonstrations of the funny old toys.... More

We went to this museum thinking just for kids, boy we were wrong! It was so much fun saw things from when I was a child, saw so many fun things, the train set up was very nice upstairs, it had elevators so easy to get around, just a nice way to spend an hour or two.

Nuremberg Toy Museum is just in the corner of the main market square in the old town. It is a delightful place for children to play, also a nice place for adult to appreciate the beautiful crafted toys through the history and culture. So many toys are displaced in three floors. After you walked through all of them, you definitely... More

I really enjoyed seeing all of the toys. I particularly liked the ancient toys - the modern ones held less interest for me. Oh, the dollhouses were fascinating as they were usable by the girls who owned them as a means to teach them about keeping house. The miniatures in them were perfect replicas of their larger counterparts. The audioguide... More

This is a cute little museum. There are a few hands on things to play with throughout but some really neat old dollhouses, dolls, trains, etc. But really my kids LOVED the top floor--tons of hands on games, crafts, toys to play with. Definitely recommend if you need some down time for the kids!

It is a must see if you go to Nuremberg. The ticket is not costly at all. They even have a games room where kids get to play a bit after an hour of walking.
