This museum is mostly centered on German toys from all ages and kind. It follows a chronological presentation. Tons of interesting and fascinating artifacts, including small soldiers, dolls houses, railway miniatures and table games (some ideologically themed from the Nazi era and from the communist German Democratic Republic). Three floors, I would say 1.5 hours at most to visit. There... More

4 exciting floors of toys! Some are really ancient, some are very beautiful and are made so precisely and sophisticated, that could be considered as a piece of art! And it has everything you could only imagine: houses for dolls with lightening, wooden floor and wallpapers with all the details of interior, complicated railways with a lot of different trains,...

My god! I took an audio guide (provided in several languages) and... More

I came for the annual toy fair to Nuremberg. This is a must visit if you are into Toya. Great toy history.

A wonderful museum to reminice your childhood or peek into the past of others. The dollhouses are fascination. Get the audio guide - it's well worth, unless you are fortunate to have private tour guide. Take your time - there is a lot to see.

Great collection of toys made predominantly in Nuremberg and surrounding area. Three floors, with a children's play area on the top floor. Expect a good 1-2 hour -long visit. All in all, a nice museum.

Museum consists of floors full of toy history. There are some even bizarre, but well. They had also some war time and post war time toys, which were made out of some junk, and every day things - some were really something made of of nothing :)

This is an amazing collection of toys. I,did not realize just how large this museum would be. The toys are arranged chronilogically. There are headsets you can rent for an additional euro that will translate and provide you with lots of information. You can pick and choose what information you would like to,retrieve, or you could listen to the complete... More
