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.

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.

We did this museum because we cancelled our Paris trip due to rainy weather. My kids ate 5yr grl and 16 month boy. That had so much fun!!!!! We did this at the end of our 12 days Italy and Switzerland vacation. Lots of collection of toys. Building is bit old but has a museum feel. We met the founder... More
