Layout a little confusing but takes you back to your childhood. The ticket desk is combined with the souvenirs and can get busy.

We saw quite a collection of toys from around the world. We had no idea that we'd see toys from our own childhood. It was fun and a great way to spend an hour or so. The train set is amazing with all the buildings and details. There was an area set up where children could play board games with... More

After a long day at a trade fair, we decided to stop in at this attraction, but only about 1/2 before closing time. The lady at the ticket window was very kind and allowed us in at a discount (we did not request the discount, it was offered.) The attraction is very nice - three floors of toys from the... More

This place is just fun, Walking around the museum was more than interesting. There were toys there that just bring one back to their own childhood. Certainly worth spending and hour or two.

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
