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

Just the right size with just the right amount of things to look at. The collection of doll houses was really cool.

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

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...
