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

We took in this fun museum toward the end of our month in Valencia, and can best describe it as a fun, fun, fun 90 minutes or so. It's about a dozen and a half rooms in a large old casa (not quite a palace, but nice nonetheless: some of the rooms are interesting in themselves, like the little chapel... More

First of all I must admit I have quite a bit of affection toward toy soldiers. So when I read about this place when I visited Valencia, I just couldn't miss it! I went there in late afternoon as they reopened from the siesta closing time. When I went there the nice gentleman in the ticket booth said that it... More

We passed this museum, as we were staying close by. My 11 year old son was intrigued. We spent about an hour with my wife viewing the extensive, wide ranging model displays, many set up in scenes through history, sporting, military and cultural. We all found it very interesting, and housed an in ornate building. It's not a must see,... More

I wasn't quite sure what to expect coming here, but it exceeded my expectations. When we first arrived, the person at the ticket counter didn't speak much English. We went up the stairs to the entry of the museum and I was floored at just how many figurines there were. The variety of figurines and the way in which they... More

This amazing collection also covers everything from circus displays and stone age chases to cartoon and movie characters. As befits Spain's neutrality during WW2, soldiers from that era are less present.
