The museum shows a good collection of toys through time. There was a toys corner for kiddy. Me and my partner went in there and played a miniature magnetic ice hockey game. It was so much fun there even for adults.

There are many larger and more historically significant attractions in Nuremburg but this one is a pleasant little gem. Explore a varied range of toys on display on all three floors. It was a real pleasure.

Very interesting displays of old and newer toys in this museum. Fun to see them and remind yourself of toys from before the internet.

we had initially planned to head to the DB Museum and had placed this secondary. unfortunately, at the Palace of Justice, we were inaccurately informed by the staff there that the DB Museum was included in the day ticket (just top up 2.50 EUR and you could visit several of the museums) and hence we ended up here, not wanting...

Very interesting museum about toys from 1400-s to modern toys, from small to big. If you have spare 1 euro take guide with you there are lots of interesting stories. Last floor is a big playground for kids, so take them with you and they will be happy too.

A well set out museum of mostly German manufactured toys from early 1800's up to modern day Lego. Set out on three floors with a model railway. The railway is only working occasionally but there is a movie film about the person who made it. The audio guide is worth using.

It was kind of cool to see the toys over the years. Mostly European of course but there were several the same from North America. There is a Kid's Playroom at the top level however there were no kids, just adults playing like they were children again. If you need to kill an hour and are in the area stop... More

I enjoyed this rather small museum not too far from the old part of town. I used the audio guide, which I highly recommend. I listened to quite a few guides during my stay in Germany, and this was the most entertaining. The speakers presented the history of the toys on display in a humorous, engaging way that was also...

We went here on a whim. We purchased a day pass for all the city museums and this was near the Albrecht Durer house so we thought we would kill an hour there before lunch! It was a great way to pass an hours worth of time. The dollhouse collection is crazy and the historical/regional toy collections are really cool!... More

This afternoon my LO had a wonderful place to play himself and with other kids. The museum has three floors and a playroom full of toys, table games and wooden bricks which was my LO's favorite and we spent all afternoon there.
