“Cute museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nice little toy museum. Colmar canbe a bit boring for younger children (3-5yr olds). This is a nice little stop to keep them amused. It is easy walking distance withi the old town. The dolls collection is amazing and the model railway cute. Downstairs are a few tables of toys/lego for the kids to play with. Will take up about 1.5 hrs of your time.

“Nice visit with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This museum is a good one if you have kids aged 2 - 10 with you or you are a miniature railroad enthusiast. There can be found three floors of toys and the railroad system occupies almost all of the third floor. At the ground floor you can play with some toys and have a ride with a little carousel (extra fee). You can buy some toy souveniers, too, but I wasn't convinced with the quality.

“Like toys? Visit this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Fabulous - no minus points at all. Especially good for Meccano of course and other toys from the mid 20th century.

“Fine museum, unfriendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We went here with our five children, aged 2 through 7. I must say, the displays were fine--there were lots of barbies and the highlight was the third floor full of trains. But overall the staff made me feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. They acted like they were watching our every child's little move and were ready to pounce as soon as we came too close to something, etc. It definitely was not a relaxed environment, which you'd think a museum that deals with kids would be.

“Good for a rainy day with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our 10 year old daughter loved it! It was fun to see the vintage Barbies and other toys, but I wouldnt go out of my way to see this museum. They have a creepy puppet show that is worth watching for a laugh...or just to give you something to talk about after you leave.
