Good museum to visit with children of all ages. It has a very comprehensive collection of toys from many periods of time. Allow at least 1 hour to appreciate its' collection.

The museum is really charming, not only for children but also for adults. You find there dolls, dishes, doll houses, tin figures, Lego, teddy bears, a model train and so on. The entrance fee is 5€ per person. It's worth paying it.

A very interesting museum, lots to see and lots to learn, especially with the audio guide (1euro!) entry is includes with the Nuremberg city card. This museum is ironically almost not for children, I'm sure they would enjoy it but there is a lot of information and not much to play with. However as a big kid, I loved it!

A kid's wonderland, I would give it a five for children. I enjoyed the toys through the decades exhibit, which includes examples of toys that they made and used right after the war. There is a very large doll collection. There is also a huge model train exhibit of, of all places, Omaha. Very fun to watch.

The museum advertises a large collection of tin soldiers among many other items. However the collection is actually quite small and is dwarfed in comparison to the doll collection, train collectibles and other toy exhibits. Was drawn by the soldiers BUT was disappointed. The good thing about this museum is it has an elevator to transport you to all four... More

A huge toy museum, for two adults maybe we missed the magic a little bit. The doll house section was amazing though, seeing the size and what some of them were like. Worth a visit.

We were crazy because of this museum! There is an old tradition for make toys in Nuremberg and that reflects in it. The richest collections of the museum is a miniature of the world during the last 200 years.
