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.

Coming from Eastern Europe, seeing toys that we got in the '90s being displayed as '70s or '80s toy was in itself an emotional journey, reminding me of sacrifices our parents had to live through in Ceausescu's era and early Iliescu's. But seing expositions such as "nazi toys" or "toys during the war" moved me close to tears... However, the... More

We came here as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 8). The cost of the ticket was reasonable and also enabled us to enter certain other museums in the same day for a slightly higher price. The collection is spread over several floors and there are either stairs or a lift. The toys are... More

A museum with difference and quite interesting for grown - ups too! Much larger than we expected and an enormous selection of toys through the ages. There is also small cafe which was very pleasant and a children's outside play area. On the top floor is also a children's hands- on area to play with some selected toys but the... More
