Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an amazing museum which has a large number of bears, dolls houses and toy cars.
The curator is very proud of his collection, which has some of his mothers dolls and houses. there is even things from the 1800`s.
The museum is only small but well worth a visit.

Such an interesting find! I am from Malta and didn't even know it existed. We were on a day trip to Gozo and my sister-in-law mentioned it. There are a lot of vintage dolls way back 1800's/ 1900's and 1930's. The best attraction for me were the doll houses. You can spend easily an hour exploring all the details and reading the information. It's like going back in time! Worth the visit!

Interesting collection of old toys from all around the world. Museum is running by nice old couple, they also tell you some information about special pieces. You can pop in while "waiting for a bus" - the bus stop is right next to museum.

This is a very small museum lovingly run by a very helpful gentleman, he is quite happy to talk to you about any one of his lovingly preserved toys, it was amazing to see some of these toys still working. If you want a trip down memory lane or maybe want to know what your great great grandma might have played with as a child then this is a must for you

My son (13) and I popped in on our way back to the farmhouse. €4.30 entry fee for us, a nice guide sheet in English, and away you go.
To be honest, it is interesting.....but as it's only on one floor and consists of approx 10-12 cased exhibits......your not going to spent any longer than an hour at the most in here.
Some items for sale at the entrance area, some old and some new.
Worth a visit but don't expect too much.
I thank you.

We spent about an hour and a half going through the various antique toys displayed in this museum. We were lucky (as we were the only visitors at the time) to have a guided tour of the museum by the Maltese person in charge of the museum. Some of the items reminded me of the toys I had when I was a boy. The place has potential yet the display areas need to be refurbished as they look rather messy and dusty.

Fantastic! Although a very small museum and indeed in what looks like a house - it kept my grown up children interested as reminded them of time spent with their Grandad, who loved Edward Lear and "Pobble who has no toes" and them sharing the books and poetry- Edward Lear lived in Xaghra for many years and much of the exhibits are connected to his poetry. Well worth the small entrance fee - in fact we left a bigger donation, because we felt the entrance fee was too small!

This museum does not brag with huge display areas or thorough explanations of the items. In fact, it is actually rather messy and un-organised and some of the items are a little freaky! But is is a nice curiosity of a little village and I do recommend to go.

We took two young boys 4 & 7 and they were fascinated by the collection. I was also fascinated to learn the history of Edward Lear in Gozo

This is a private collection of a British expat living in Gozo. It is a short visit so if you have kids along it would be an eye opener on how the older generation used to pass the time playing with toys that did not come with a battery or an electronic screen!!!!!
