This was a very worthwhile and interesting Museum. Well worth a visit for adults and children. Situated in the city centre.

If you ever played with toy soldiers when you were a kid, you will enjoy an hour in this place. Entire historical battle scenes have been recreated using little lead soldiers. If that sounds boring, skip it, there's plenty more to see in Valencia.

It's a very interesting museum. I've never seen anything like it before. It's not just the small figures, but the incredible way that they are arranged. They show various historic scenes, some of which are really impressive.

I went to this museum after reading the rave reviews here on TA, and thoroughly enjoyed it. You have to be something of a history buff, I think, to get the most out of it. You move through a series of rooms, and see different episodes from (mostly) western history in the form of dioramas featuring exquisitely painted toy soldiers... More

We noticed the good Tripadvisor reviews this museum was receiving and decided to visit. How glad we were of this decision. The collection of lead figures - mainly military - is housed in a beautiful mansion with a glorious courtyard at its entrance. The collection depicts details of great battles as well as information about military ranks. This may seem... More

This is an amazing place to visit. I'm not a fan of lead soldiers or figurines, but the museum really impressed me. I must also say that the building that hosts the museum is very nice.

I have never seen this many toy soldiers in my entire life. This museum is definitely worth your time and wel worth the money. I just can't imagine how much time and money they had to put into building this many scenes from human (mainly Spanish) history. Some battle scenes are simply breath taking and I spend a long time...

Collecting tin soldiers was a very fashionable hobby in the late-19th century western Spain, consequently both Barcelona and Valencia is a gold mine for those with an interest in this ever-rare collectors item. This museum is possibly the largest of its kind anywhere in Europe (and world?), and holds over 90.000 pieces spread through all times and contexts. The collection... More
