Part of a visit to the Prague Castle which took in 2 floors. Interesting to see ancient toys for kids in light of the modern computer age.

This little museum tucked within the castle grounds is a gem. It had me oohing and ahing at the miniatures, the incredible steam powered toys and the incredibly detailed doll's houses. The highlight for me was the Barbie exhibit though - my inner child was jumping for joy. Be warned that although that exhibit is billed as "Barbie and Star... More

This is an excellent museum with an extensive collection of toys. I was surprised at the extent of the exhibition. If you love toys, this is for you. There are many pieces, ranging from very old to more modern. They are lovingly and thoughtfully displayed. There are also numerous plaques explaining what the toys are and the history. The Barbie...

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!

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.
