It's very small with only 3 small rooms (and by small room I mean like, you can see the whole room from the doorway.) so don't expect to get that much from it. It's very lovely though, the lift has like this wooden doll house-like...More

The museum is not too big, actually you can walk around and finish it within 45 minutes. However the building makes it worthwile to visit it, it is located inside a tower. The floors are just about 3x3 meters, but you can go and see...More

The museum is located in the tower of the Old City Hall. For 4,00 € you can climb the staircase or use a life and examine toys 50-100 years old and older. The museum is rather small, the collection is restricted... I had an idea...More

Spent €8 for two adults. Four tiny rooms of old toys. A few glass cases of teddy bears (maybe 20? 30?) but nothing impressive. Was really disappointed. We saw everything within 10 minutes. Go browse some souvenir stores instead for free.

Don't expect too much. The exhibition is very small, however it worth to see and they have very nice old toys. It is a good opportunity to show our kids how our grandparents played 100 years ago.
