We went to Sintra with this being one of the places planned to visit simply because we have never been to a toy museum.....and we were not dissapointed. Thousands of toys spread over 3 floors and arranged per themes (cars, toy soldier, books, dolls and doll houses, etc.). Top floor is the dolls and doll houses and for every woman... More

It's a pity this museum has closed it's doors on the 31st of August. I only heard of it in the beginning of August, exactly because of reading on a national newspaper that it was going to close it's doors at the end of the month. I was fortunate enough to visit in the penultimate day of it's current existence,... More

I loved this place. All those old toys displayed together can look a bit creepy but that's part of it's charm! Very central and has a lift.

Very enjoyable wander around with 3 teenagers laughing at their parents saying 'ooo I used to have one of those'!! Information booklet provided to accompany your visit which is particulsrly... More

We visited with our young daughters and were pleasantly by the size and variety of the collection, covering traditional Portuguese toys as well as toys from around Europe. The museum is spread over three floors and covers cars, boats, planes, soldiers, dolls as well as Lego etc. There was plenty to keep the kids interested as well as toys to... More

We spent a happy hour in this place of childhood nostalgia, after a friend had recommended it to us. We started at the top of the 3 story building and worked our way down, equipped with an information booklet (provided in many languages). The top floor is filled with dolls and exquisite doll houses. The variety of dresses and costumes... More

Amazing collection of toys from all years and regions. You are bound to have owned some of these at some time in your life, and it is fun to see them again.
