It´s a welcoming place, with a cozy cafe to eat a snack and rest. Yet I would call it not a museum, but a collection of old toys, most from early and mid 20th century. So I would consider it a little overpriced.

Hi, thank you for visiting us!
About the ticket prices in 2019: Adult 7,-/ Children (7-17) 3,-
Lovely collection with cute old teddies, elegant porcelan dolls and all the others. As you know we all are coming from our childhood but also we should know the childhood of our parents and grandparents.
This is not only the museum - in the cafe...More
I have more interesting old toys between the cushions on my couch... This is a total waste of money. It's two rooms with some old and boring toys in it, on the edge of creepy. I wanted to get my money back afterwards.

The Toy Museum would appeal more to adults than to children. There are charming collections of dolls, stuffed animals, metal toys, cardboard cutouts and other playthings from a variety of countries displayed nicely within individual cabinets. The written guide provides a lot of interesting information...More
This tiny little museum nestled on a small island off Helsinki will always hold a special place in my heart. It is packed with toys through the ages, many of them over a hundred years old. They range from the adorable (teddy bears) to the...More
This is a delightful - and surprisingly comprehensive - collection of dolls and toys, run by the daughter of the woman who founded it in her home. You can rush through just for the nostalgia, or take your time and absorb some knowledge from the...More
We visited the museum last week, it brought me back to my childhood memories.
Tasty homemade cakes and very kind staff.
I don't know when but I know I will come back, I hope it will be soon!
Don’t miss it!
This is a very interesting museum. There is a leaflet available when you enter that guides you trough the museum. With descriptions of what you see at each cabinet. Even though this is a toy museum, I would say that it is more adult focused....More
