Excellent museum. It takes around 2 hours to visit. There is even a cafeteria upstairs. There are also other wonderful attractions in this town.

“ideal for the younger ones”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

It is easily reached by train. The younger ones will admire all the toys and adults will have a good time too. There is a collection of old toys. You will certainly recognize a lot of your favorite toys from last century.

Unexpected and long forgotten toys bring you back to your youth. And even the kids will like it. They can spend several hours watching and truying out.

“Nice museum but gives an old impression”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

This museum is something you can visit, when there's nothing else to do around. They have a big collection of toys, old and new. Fun for the kids because there is a lot to see and some interactive things to do.
But nevertheless, the museum gives an old impression.
