Lots of toys

A huge toy museum, for two adults maybe we missed the magic a little bit. The doll house section was amazing though, seeing the size and what some of them were like. Worth a visit.

A kid's wonderland, I would give it a five for children. I enjoyed the toys through the decades exhibit, which includes examples of toys that they made and used right after the war. There is a very large doll collection. There is also a huge model train exhibit of, of all places, Omaha. Very fun to watch.

Nuremberg is know for being the toy capital of Germany and this means of course they have a toy museum. The toy museum is quite large and they have a lot of toys. The ground floor has a lot of the wooden toys and then you go up to the first floor and it is dolls and more dolls, plus... More

The museum advertises a large collection of tin soldiers among many other items. However the collection is actually quite small and is dwarfed in comparison to the doll collection, train collectibles and other toy exhibits. Was drawn by the soldiers BUT was disappointed. The good thing about this museum is it has an elevator to transport you to all four... More

We were crazy because of this museum! There is an old tradition for make toys in Nuremberg and that reflects in it. The richest collections of the museum is a miniature of the world during the last 200 years.

We spent 90 minutes or so here as a diversion from the Christmas market. Each floor is themed and nicely organized. The toys are interesting to look at and some even allow/encourage interaction (look for buttons). Unfortunately the model train wasn’t running, a disappointment to my son, but he loved the playroom on the top floor. We had to pull... More

This museum is over 4 levels of toys. There were dolls, trains, stuffed animals and cars. On the 4th level there is a play area for the children. A person can also get a headset to listen to the various descriptions. There is a big train set which is rather large. The museum brought me back to my childhood.

Magical exhibition! I not only went back to my childhood but also had the chance to discover how my parents, grandparents and their parents played. I really loved the beautiful dollhouses and the breathtaking trains.

This museum dedicated to toys of all sorts is skillfully set up and displays every kind of toy one could expect. There is a great operating train set but, unfortunately for me, an HO hobbyist, it was being worked on while we were there. This was not a big project so the set should be running again by now. If...
