It was amazing to see the types of toys kids played with 100 years ago. What I found to be enjoyable was the friendly staff and the way that they explained the toys in their museum. The only downside is that it is a little small and that you have to go up a lot of stears to get to... More

My daughter requested us to go here. The elevator taking one up to the actual floor where the small museum is is tiny and leaves a sense of claustrophobia. The actual toy displays are remarkable with the oldest toy ( made out of wood.....chicken pecking) is 215 years old. There are many old dolls , trains, and complete room sets... More

This was a welcome visit after our disappointing visit to the national museum. The museum caretaker was full of fabulous stories about most of the toys in the museum. We were fortunate to be the only visitors for almost an hour and she gave us a great tour. If you visit...PLEASE ask about the story of the Barbie collection!!! As... More

There was a chill in the air and Zurich was all decked out for Christmas. The perfect time to visit the Zürich Toy Museum and relive some childhood memories. After being warmly greeted, I was given a nice introduction to the museum's collection. A good deal of it came from famed Swiss toy maker Franz Carl Weber. The huge toy... More

the museum houses lots of old toys which reflect the lives of european in the last century. it is quite small and the visit will take only 1-2 hrs. staff are friendly and willing to introduce the toys. tourists with swiss pass can have free access.

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.
