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

Both my 15-year-old niece and I enjoyed this museum. We only had 45 min. To explore and wished we had more. They have quite an extensive collection of doll houses.

This is a nice museum with a collection of toys from the Middle Ages to present. I suggest renting their audio guide to maximize the experience. There is a play area for children in one room on the top floor, but be aware that the toys are behind glass for their protection. It's my opinion that adults will enjoy this... More

This is well worth a visit when in nuremberg. They have a rich history of toy making and it's all on show here. A vast collection spread over 3 floors with an excellent audio guide (for 1 euro extra if you already have a day ticket). Unlike other museums in nuremberg it flows a lot better and you can walk...
