The model railway is still there, but with a new, slower running locomotive. There are also some more tin toys. As it was a wet day, we spent some time admiring the collection.

Visited this museum with friends and really enjoyed the variety of mechanical musical instruments. The building is very old with plenty of history. The guide was extremely good and played many of the musical items for us. Not a toy museum in the true sense.

Enjoyed the return visit with my partner to see the museum, and still marvel at some of the amazing exhibits on display. An excellent guide and most enjoyable visit.

This is not worth the 5 euro entrance fee. One euro, maybe. It is only one floor, and takes about 5 minutes to see everything. Of course, it takes longer to photograph all the disturbing toys housed within so you can scare your friends by posting photos of demonic dolls on Facebook.

Never seen such a collection of mechanical toys in my life.The museum has guide tours depending on the time of the year, but the afternoon is a good time and worth to wait for; the tour was a unique passionated time with the guide that knows the museum and has a passion for mechanical toys. Situated in an old Castle/Farm... More

The museum has quite an extensive collection, including a model railway (HO gauge) loosely modelled on this part of the Rhine valley. One train circulates when you enter the room housing the railway. There are a number of static displays ranging from old sheet metal clockwork trains to more modern electric trains, as well as a number of model cars... More

We found out about this on-line on the Ruedesheim tourist webpage. You have to ring a bell to get in. We liked the working model railway, and the large collection of trains, boats and cars, many of them, as you would expect, German toys. I should say it is a collection for adults to admire, rather than children.

Most of the displays are in glass cases with little information. The railway lay out had no trains running and did not look very inspiring. Might suit someone who is very keen on old model trains but for most people would not be worth the entrance fee.

The Toy Museum in Ruddesheim is not sign posted and we realised why when we finally found it as it is not worth paying the 5 Euros each to get in. It is in an office type building, has no atmosphere. It is advertised as having a large train layout, however, we could not get the trains to move around... More
