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 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
