With ongoing activities and rotating collections and exhibitions, it’s a great place for the youngsters to blow off steam while checking out toys and games in a foreign land. « less

i visited it with my grandchildren from 3 and 5 years old.. They were absolutely crazy about it. It's not only about looking at nice toys, it is also actively playing. The only comparable place I even visited was in Nuerenberg.

It was a rare trip in winter in nov with my 17 year old son .A private taxi dropped us to the entrance as we had come from Antwerpen. At the entrance we rang the bell and stood trying the entry and exit doors for 15 minutes before we realised that it was open and were just about to go... More

Very funny to suddenly remember lots of stuf from childhood, just by seeing your childhood toys. Only not topped off with the more recent toys, which we found a pitty.

The museum is located somewhat outside the center, there is plenty of (free) parking nearby. The building is rather outdated and many of the exhibits could use a refurbishment. It has the history of toys mostly in displays. Some of the displays had a gauze window, which made it difficult to see the actual toys, especially from kids level. In... More

While visiting the town of Mechelen, we took some time to visit the toy museum, located at the outscirts of Mechelen. Absoloutely worthwhile, toys from many generations back, for us it was a trip down memory lane.

They claim to be Europe's biggest toy museum, which may well be true - there are 3 stories of displays, the coloured signs directing you around the museum are (like all signposting in Belgium) more confusing than helpful, but you'll soon find what you're interested in, from dolls to construction sets. The descriptions in the display cases are almost exclusively... More
