The exhibition itself is nothing major but the building is great.
Guess for what they offer it should be free entrance.
Museum shop is overpriced.

You don't have to be a kid to thoroughly enjoy this museum. Toys from the past accompanied by fabulous paintings by Soledad Tafolla. Don't forget to go to the roof top for some great picture taking views.

This unique museum of Mexican toys is definitely worth a visit. Will take less than an hour and modest entry fee. The renovated building is light filled and lovely. A fun museum.

This museum has lots of old kids toys. My brother and I really liked it, but I wish it was bigger so we could have seen more. All in all, it was fun to see what kinds of toys Mexican kids used to play with.
