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...

A collection of beautiful toys. Among others, a floor of astoundingly detailed dolls houses, another floor with steam and mechanical toys and trains. At the end they had toys through the decades of the twentieth century, where we got excited spotting things we recognised (I had exactly that Sindy horse! Yes mummy, we need to go now...) At the end... More

Really nice to see different toys through decades and centuries. You can see nineteenth's century toys, old doll houses and the rise of modern toys such as Barbies and Lego.

Located a few blocks from the main square in Nuremberg, this is a good family visit, particularly if you are traveling with younger children. Each floor is a different period of history with the collection organized around themes. For my teenagers, they gravitated to the elaborate trains, erector sets and post-war toys. Cultural moment for the adults was the 1970s,... More

We had 2 hours in the middle of Nurnberg, and our entire party agreed that we had to go to the Toy Museum. It is a little pricey at 5 euros per adult, and the ticket taker would not give us the student rate for our 18-year old, even with his passport. However, the museum has such a complete collection...

After the solemnity of the Nazi Party rally grounds, I needed an attraction with a bit more levity. The Toy Museum was the perfect panacea. Featuring countless German toys from past centuries all the way to the present day. Teddies, construction sets, toy houses, animal figurines, toy cars, miniature kitchens (that can actually cook food!)..... I could go on for... More

It was my first Toy Museum and was amazing pleasure for me to see the development of the toy over the past two hundred years.

Had a great time looking at the history of toys but there are a lot of families and it was very noisy making it hard to read and focus. All in all a great place!

One of the 6 museums you get as part of a 3 Euro ticket. The BEST buy I found in Germany and I actually went to 3 of the 6. This toy museum in unique in my mind since had not seen so many old mechanical toys anywhere. Germany was known for their toys.
