Lovely museum, very well laid out and huge. Impossible to see it all in just a few hours. Wonderful way to reminisce about the toys we played with in our use. Nice to have some interactive activities also.

This place is an unexpected pleasure. It is great for people of ALL AGES! My mother of 93 enjoyed it as did the rest of the party. Memory lane in one bulding. Did not have enough time, the place is big. Kids come there for birthday parties; plenty of hands-on games etc.

All decades faithfully shown, including Raleigh Choppers, Space Hoppers etc... but the train sets are absolutely fantastic. Lots of hands on stuff as well

If you think children had lower variety of games and toys before minecraft, lego or matchbox was invented, you will be surprised here. It may also help imagining how our parents and grandparents lived before they grew up.

it's been the perfect place to be with children on rainy sunday, in Belgium there's just bars open on sundays... Beautiful collection of games and dolls, unfortunately not in perfect conditions. There's a nice pay area near the cafeteria but inside the museum there aren't too many interactive spaces for children, which would be great.

We two adults, 46 and 70, loved this museum. It brought back so many memories. Even though we're American, we recognized many of the items. The only negative was the lack of signage in English.

I visited this museum with my boyfriend. We both enjoyed it very much as we saw a lot of toys we recognised from our childhood. Especially the miniature train department is really lovely!

The museum is a bit run down but has a great collection of toys. It really was a trio down memory lane for me. And my four year old daughter was enjoying it as well as it gave her ideas for presents.

The museum offers a voyage trough the history of toys during the last centuries. Especially the collection of dolls is really precious and overwhelming.

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.
