There were many interesting toys and games in the museums. There were also history told about toys making all over Germany. It wasn't a really big museum, so we didn't need to spend a lot of time to look around. But the museum itself was, to me, very interactive. There were some areas we could only see, but the other...

Holds a massive collection of toys ranging from antiquity to the modern day, with perhaps the best audio guide I ever encountered

Got to the museum less than an hour to closing so we got a discount on admission. We didn't have time to linger, but saw most everything in the 4-story structure. It has everything from childhood friends like Barbie and He-Man to rare old treasures. Full rooms for toy soldiers and doll houses. Wonderful collection of tin toys. My favorite... More

The collection is great a the staff friendly, I even found some toys I used to play with at the end of the exibition. It should be a bit more interactive.

Museum has a large collection of toys and to some extend they are sorted by time period. But that is basically all. Also very much items of a few kinds of toys (e.g. dollhouses). And for children the options to actually play with toys are very limited.

I love toy museums. This is the nicest one I've visited. It's clean, huge, and has a wide variety of toys. Bring your camera and reserve at least 1.5 hours.

Good selection of toys from all centuries. As Nuremberg used to be a centre of toys production you find a lot of local products.

One of the biggest (if not the biggest) toy museums in the world. Four floors of numerous exhibits. Fun for serious toy and history lovers guarantees. Children - when tired - may occupy themselves with real play. Allow at least 3 hours to see the full collection. Additional tip - good and unique collection of placards in the local gift... More
