This cosy private family museum and cafeteria has served visitors for decades. Collection is remarkable, including some wartime specialities and various kids’ porcelein service sets by Arabia before 40’s. Cafeteria serves excellent home made treats, coffees and quality tea.

An absolute MUST if you are visiting the island! First of all, I enjoyed it as an adult seeing some toys from when I was a child. Second, my child enjoyed it as I taught him about how life was a hundred years ago based on the toys and their play houses! He was fascinated by how houses were so different through the ages! The space age toys were so neat and we really took our time going through all the cases! The gift shop has some super cool vintage toys and I purchased some beautiful souvenirs as well as a vintage toy for my son. Highly recommend touring around and learning about the toys! Beautiful!

A ferry trip to Suomenlinna island is easy and not long. Island itself is authentic with so much green and old on it. You can walk around, have a picnic or eat a pie in Toy Museum Cafe. Super break to old times fashion and toys. For children just interesting to see.

This museum is located in a charming wooden villa.

The museum is quite small but the collection is plentiful. There are hundreds of old dolls, antique teddy bears, and other old toys from the early 19th century until the 1960s.

The museum has a cozy Cafe Samovarbar with a summer terrace.

Fresh homemade treats, cool little museum with vintage toys. Some have a brief history about the toy. Guides in many different languages. The owner is extremely friendly and nice and made it such a pleasant trip.

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.
Worth a visit only if you´re a fan of vintage toys.

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.
Buyer beware - NO value for money

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. We spent about 1,5 hours walking around the small museum and reading about every toy.

The Toy Museum is run by a lovely family and is a fairy tale bungalow in the island. The toy museum is beautiful and they also have a very very cozy coffee shop.

The owner lady was very sweet and charming and told us a lot about how the family has spent their life time on the Island.

Do NOT give this place a miss when you there :)
