Zlatá ulička? Hrad? No... This museum was the best thing on Hradčany. You might want to take your children for a little history of childhood lesson. Or don't be shy, go there alone, adults can get a bit sentimental too ;)

Museum is good but one can skip if not time or no kids. I think a big scandal going in this museum. Both ticket issuer and ticket checker don't show money to museum as they take all money in their pocket. I was never issued ticket and when I asked her she said it's ok. when i insisted i need...

This fascinating little museum is located within the castle grounds and is an interesting way to pass an hour. What's more, the entrance fee is less than £2 per person. The exhibits are arranged over two floors, the second of which contains the largest collection of Barbie dolls I have ever seen. Overall, we spent a very enjoyable hour wandering... More

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.

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.
