Fun place to go through with old and new toys on 2 floors. A LOT of stairs to get there! I wandered into this museum thinking it was free but was asked to pay on the way out. A large sign with the admission price would be an improvement! Still it was quite nice for the price.

We were very lucky as Barbie was celebrating her 50th anniversary so the museum had a magnificent collection of her and friends, many of which were special editions. The Star Wars collection was slightly smaller but equally as fascinating. The wooden and tin toys of yesteryear would never pass todays health and safety standards, however to those who remember those... More

Did not expect to stumble into The Toy Museum here, as we finished our trip around the castle. Surprised, actually, to realize that the museum is hardly featured or listed in any guides, thus imagine our delight to find the place. It has two storeys, one being the permanent collection of dolls and toys from yesteryears to present dates, and... More

I wouldn't recommend going to this musuem and this is coming from someone who likes toy museums. The toys need to be displayed better, description of the toys were poorly displayed. If you are a Barbie person, you will enjoy the collection. There were a few families with children there that seemed bored.

I won't tell you much and I won't share any photos. You should really discover this place on your own. I can tell you this: my entire childhood flashed before my eyes!

Walking up past the two guards, we easily found the toy museum and this was on my list of visits, not so much my wife's, as she was concerned I’d take photos of every toy. There were loads of stairs inside, to get up to the museum level, not what we wanted after the hill we’d just walked up. Admission... More

We went there without having planned it before and because we were passing by the sign. In fact, it turned out to be extremely interesting; much more than the Golden Lane closely and that is more well-known. There are hundreds of toys and figurines on 2 floors, and we really enjoyed spending 1 hour in the museum. The ticket only... More

As a huge fan of old toys I was so excited by the collection the museum had. I was especially excited to see the very old set of "wizard of oz" dolls!

Loved seeing the toys of my childhood and more!!! Staff woman (manager? owner?) was terribly mean to my daughter. We were short on $$ so I went in to enjoy while my daughter had kindly planned to sit or stand just inside the door - 3 floors down with no view of the museum - to keep warm. The woman... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
