Visiting this museum is one of the top things to do on the Anatolian Side of Istanbul. The collection is very rich and the display is very attractively organized. As a young person, I felt like I was travelling in time. I thank Sunay Akın for collecting all these valuable pieces and founding this museum!

It is one of the sights I have always wanted to visit. For some reasons, I went there with my kid. We loved it. There are some activities as well like plays or painting workshop. The cafe serves boutique patisseries I think. They look and taste healthy. The atmosphere is limited but cosy. The decoration deserves credit.

Istanbul is full of first rate museums....including the city itself. This year was my fourth visit, and the woman who ran my hotel told me about it, gave me directions, and the highest recommendations. She was right. I spent several hours there climbing to each floor...totally entranced with the collection of toys from all over the world. They are beautifully displayed in a lovely building that includes a very good snack bar as well as a helpful staff who all seem to enjoy being there as much as me. It was much too much for one visit, and I was leaving Istanbul the next day. There are windup toys from Germany and Japan, dioramas from America, things from everywhere..including scads of teddy bears and ancient Disney mice, toy submarines and model planes from a hundred years ago. I cannot recommend it too highly. It's on the Asian side of the city. Public transit there was too confusing, so I took a cab from the ferry. It was about five dollars including tip each way...and well worth it.

We visited this museum with 2 little kids (3.5 and 5.5 y.o.) while staying in Istanbul. Took some time to find it, but with the help of nice passerby, we got there. Nice museum, with several floors filled with toys from hundred years ago to most recent. All toys are exhibited behind glass displays, so while it's interesting to explore and read about the history of the toys for adults, it gets a bit boring for little kids. An overall very nice and unique experience, more geared towards adults or older kids who can read.
