It has a good collection of mostly old toys. The top floor has an old fashioned games that both kids and adults can play. Impressive doll houses and other high quality antique toys. Enjoyable for both children and adults.

It is extraordinary, exciting, also to grownups. One floor dedicated to Lehmann, higly exciting manufacturer of toys up to our times. There are a lot of dolls houses of all sizes, and on the top floor a large working railway station.

I spent a good 1 1/2 hours here, it was a delightful museum, very well maintained and with helpful staff. There are lots of trips down memory lane made with the many, many toys on display. It would not matter what age you are, you would enjoy a visit to this museum. If you are in Nuremberg make this a... More

If you are traveling with young teenagers or for the kid in all of us this is your place. We did not realize that Nuremburg was known for toy shops and factories dating back to the 14th century. With all the museums one visits it is nice to explore something out of the norm. It has a nice, housed in... More

As antiques collectors, we couldn´t miss this very well presented museum. The collection is huge. The distribution of the show is explicit. We got many posters and souvenirs from the well organised shop museum.

We had the great good luck to visit this place on the last Saturday of the month and were thus able to see a demonstration of an incredible model train exhibit. Even if you can't see it working, there is a movie about it (in German) and it's awesomely cool to look at: "Omaha, Nebraska" in Nuremberg! In addition to... More

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
