This is right at Marienplatz and is about 3 small rooms in a tower with probably 20 or so total display cases of old toys. There are certainly some interesting pieces and it was only €8 for a family pass. Our kids enjoyed it but I thought it was a bit in need of some updates. If you have little... More

This is an interesting toy museum in an old building with winding stairs. There is a good collection of teddy bears, dolls, trains and even robots. A nice way to spend an hour for a couple of euros.

This curious little museum is located in the tower of the original Town Hall, right on Marienplatz in the middle of Munich. You can take a small elevator or navigate the narrow, spiraling stairs to see a few floors of toys, some odd, some endearing. Germany has quite a history of toy making and it was interesting to learn more... More

This little museum is owned by the same family that owns the toy museum in Prague. It is located in a tall old turret very near the famous clock. There is a small vintage Barbie section and a small Steiff section. Worth seeing if you like vintage toys.

The first time we visited a museum for toys. Very unique and interesting. Brings back many memories of our youth and makes me very emotional. Great place to send an hour for adults and children.

This has toys of all types through four levels of the tower. You also can look out the windows as you work your way down. After climbing to the first level, you pay to visit, ride the elevator to the top, and go down. I only wish the gift shop had a bit more in the way of toys to... More

I took my 3 year old here because it had been recommended as a fun thing to do with kids. It is cheap (4 euro for adults) but quite small. It's basically three rooms with various collections of toys behind glass. My son had a melt down because he couldn't touch any of the toys. I had read that there... More

The museum itself is interesting and not too big, so it will not take too much of your time. However, the museum is inside a tower and it has beautiful views of Marienplatz, through old glass windows.
