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

It is easily reached by train. The younger ones will admire all the toys and adults will have a good time too. There is a collection of old toys. You will certainly recognize a lot of your favorite toys from last century.
