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

A fun place to revisit your youth. Rooms of themed collections, train station, dolls, ships, largest Barbie collection ever. Tinker toys, wind up toys, meccano – whatever you played with as a child (or your grandparents) will be there. 30Kr. for seniors and you can peek down onto Golden Lane! Not sure if it has an elevator but as it... More

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

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.
