One of the biggest (if not the biggest) toy museums in the world. Four floors of numerous exhibits. Fun for serious toy and history lovers guarantees. Children - when tired - may occupy themselves with real play. Allow at least 3 hours to see the full collection. Additional tip - good and unique collection of placards in the local gift... More

Glasses made of real cristals or teapots made of Chineese porcelain! Or maybe you will be amazes when you see a doll hause more than 2 meters long! You have no idea what kind of toys were produced 100 years ago!

More folks should visit this museum. The mechanical toys on the second floor are amazing! An entire "working" mine toy! Beautiful examples of painted beds, chandeliers, and so forth.

We enjoyed the layout and design of the museum. The exhibits were interesting but the children would have enjoyed more toys to play with rather than just watch behind glass.

Toy Museum is a misnomer. The "miniature" houses built and furnished for the children of the wealthy have to be seen to be believed. The detail exceeds your imagination, down to every copper pot and pewter plate in the kitchens. A must see!

We ducked into the Spielzeugmuseum when it started raining. The price was reasonable. Audio tours are available, but the self-guided tour was still interesting. Be sure to pay attention to the optical illusions in the stairwells.

After seeing so many wonderful buildings, it was nice to take a quick trip back in time with toys. The layout is a little confusing, but it is enjoyable to turn a corner and find another little display. Although we didn't have children with us, I'm sure the top floor interactive room would be a big hit with them.

It was nice to see how toys improved from the stone-age to the XXI. century. This 4 or 5 floor museum is a good choice not only for children, but for adults too. And you can't imagine how big it is, so don't be suprised if you go in and will come out after just 2 hours ;)

Nice place for the kids to spend some indoor time. Very organised with different floors exhibiting different types of toys. Some interactive exhibits to engage the kids. The top floor was a great idea with games for the kids to enjoy.
