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

Amazing collection of toys from all ages. It has an in door and out door play area for kids. Worth a visit. And also walk from central station to the museum in the old city is a superb experience.

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...
