We spent 90 minutes or so here as a diversion from the Christmas market. Each floor is themed and nicely organized. The toys are interesting to look at and some even allow/encourage interaction (look for buttons). Unfortunately the model train wasn’t running, a disappointment to my son, but he loved the playroom on the top floor. We had to pull... More

This museum is over 4 levels of toys. There were dolls, trains, stuffed animals and cars. On the 4th level there is a play area for the children. A person can also get a headset to listen to the various descriptions. There is a big train set which is rather large. The museum brought me back to my childhood.

Magical exhibition! I not only went back to my childhood but also had the chance to discover how my parents, grandparents and their parents played. I really loved the beautiful dollhouses and the breathtaking trains.

This museum dedicated to toys of all sorts is skillfully set up and displays every kind of toy one could expect. There is a great operating train set but, unfortunately for me, an HO hobbyist, it was being worked on while we were there. This was not a big project so the set should be running again by now. If...

Four levels of beautiful toy displays in the city of toys. Nuremburg hosts a vendor only toy exposition each year to announce new products. Dolls, planes, trains, automobiles, stuffed animals, etc etc.

As an Asian, I'm surprised to see some interesting toys here which were similar with my childhood's. Love to see these inventions thru entire toy history.

The relevant part of this museum for my wife and I was when toys became manufactured from the 40's. That display of 40,50,60,70,80,90s era toys was like a story of our lives. The museum is easy to cover in a few hours and is a great bad weather day or any day activity. the Doctor hit me with a helpful... More

The Spielzeugmuseum is a magical little museum: four floors of a wide range of toys from the last 200 years or so. The museum is very well organized: categorically and visually. The overall experience was very positive, and it is so much fun stepping back into your childhood (and that of kids decades ago). The museum is a lot of... More
