There is a lot to see, and you can spend hours in here if you have the time. There are audio guides in English and German (and I'm not sure what other languages) that are very informative. You can listen to everything or pick and chose depending on your time. There is even a suggested list of things to hear... More

A great little museum in Nuremberg. You don't need more then an hour here and the gift shop is awesome with some really neat toys available for purchase, hand made in Nuremberg.

An excellent museum, well laid out and very interesting and informative. Do not miss this gem if in Nuremberg. Be sure to take advantage of the English headsets available for 1 euro each.

5 euros, interesting and worth a look. Looking for lots of unique toys it was great a little out of disrepair though, many cabinets and lights not working. They have a terrific train set but it only runs for certain hours and we weren't there at the right time.

Tells the story of the toy industry in Nuremberg, Germany and some is more generic. For an additional $1E you can get a language friendly audio tour. Not to be missed because of it's unique story approach for the children and a little cultural propaganda regarding changes in the rolls of workers. Adults will recognize many of the toys from...

My daughter and I enjoyed the exhibits with the dolls and doll houses. There were some amazing doll houses. Just beautiful.

I thought this would be for only children but the history and all the things to see inside are too fantastic to speak about. You must go early and take your time to see it all and truly understand the history of the toy business here in Germany where it all started. Do not leave town without seeing this place.

Though hard to find this little gem is worth the effort. It has a functioning elevator and so is "disabled friendly". Gift shop is only modest but staff very helpful. The story of toys through the ages is told with simple details. Though primarily focussed on the German toy industry(latterly concentrated in the Nuremburg area) it is far from being... More

Found the visit to this museum very interesting. Good displays showing progression of toy making. Play area for the kids on the last floor. Not sure if you would take young children to this museum as you have 2 floors of toy displays to get through.
