Stair climbing is involved but take your time and take it all in.
One collector put it together over 40 years or so!

I just didn't really find this too interesting. I wouldn't have gone to a toy museum in other places, but our host recommended it. If you like to see toys from other cultures, you'd love it. The pieces are very intricate, its just not my thing.

This wonderful museum of Mexican toys is more than just playthings -- it is basically a folk art museum. The ingenuity of the toymakers to create toys out of materials at hand is amazing. The beauty of many of these toys will amaze you. This is definitely not just for kids.

This was a really cool museum that had some really cool old toys. I learned the story of the Day of the Dead celebration while there which made the skeleton toys seem not so scary.
