As a Barbie fan, I was more than delighted when I discovered this Toy Museum on the castle grounds. On the top floor, there is an exposition devoted to the 50th anniversary of Barbie. In particular, they have a human-sized Barbie doll which is a great photo-opportunity for anyone that grew up with the doll. They have a broad collection... More

Some of the displays here are wonderful and others are very average. Its a Museum of Toys and they have some historic stuff here no question..... Its worth the price of admission ,but it could be so much better.

Although this museum for its wealth of material ( toys), the second largest in the world, the impression is that the toys should in large part be restored and re-define what is actually representative of that, and what is not. In addition it would be desirable to design their new presentation.

I'm a museum fan, and I'm also study education, so Museum of Toys was something what I really wanted to visited. But I was really disappointed. All the toys are behind the glass, what I do undersatand, as they are valuable, but, imo they should make some copies that alowed kids (and some adults) experience the colection. I have visited...

First it is important to take into account this is a museum with a huge toy collection for viewing. It includes toys from different periods, which could be educational and possibly emotional for grown ups. There are very limited interactive exhibits to intrigue youngsters (if you visit be sure to locate them - they highly improved my kids experience..., in... More

Went today for visit after seeing this museum by chance when touring the castle earlier in the week. So glad we did. The exhibits were world class with something for everyone. Would have liked a little more information on some of the exhibits, but then you need them translated into a number of languages which clogs up the cabinets so... More

Although pretty small, this museum is quite delightful (and inexpensive). It has a comprehensive collection of toys from the first half of the 1900s, but not too much from more recent times besides the impressive assortment of Barbies. Barbie was not my favorite toy, but the exhibit really gives wonderful insight into her popularity and history. I suppose the intention... More

A very comprehensive, beautiful and well explained collection of old toys and dolls of all kinds. . This lies en route to and close to Prague Castle. Well worth the stop. Photos are allowed. Some exhibits show movement, but many more could too.

We passed the sign to this museum and I remembered reading about it so we went in. It was really great. Stuff you remember from childhood... I even loved the special Barbie exhibition they had though I'm not a Barbie fan...
