What a small museum in a building of the old town. But how many nice "old toys" to see and discover on 2 floors! Not accessible with a pram or babies. Better to go with older children. A children corner where they can play and some toys to buy as souvenir.

Hot and boring. Had seen many of the toys before. Would have used this time for better sightseeing in Zurich. We made the mistake of going to this attraction. Kids were rather bored, and as a 63-year-old woman, I had seen many similar toys. Unless you are interested in antiques, this is a waste of time.

A very small museum with selected toys displayed. THE TOYS OF THE PAST GENERATIONS WERE MUCH NICER THAN WHAT CHILDREN HAVE NOW! you'd be amazed at how detailed the toys were!

Very small but selected objects displayed. It lakes a bit of character. A bit more details about a late owner or manufacturer would be great.
