It was a very peaceful, intriguing and entertaining stop on a city self tour. The history of toys and the role played by European artists was astonishing.

I felt the entry price at this museum was quite a lot for what it was. 5 Euros each for about 10 minutes is a bit steep, although some information was in English, it was not consistently so. one or two good things for the kids which i won't spoil by disclosing here.

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.

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.

We found the place by accident, no sign posts. however when we went in, the museum was a clutter of old toys, upstairs were lots of tin plate toys worth a fortune. the models were mostly on shelves or in glass cases, We were most interested in the trains and old german war ships from the early 1900 .The model...
