  • This cannot be considered a real Museum in any sense of the word, they change all their exhibits and layout to appease a "Woke" left and have therefore no longer portray any accurate history. Ruined.....  more »

  • A fantastic place for adults and children. The kids can spend at least 2~3 hours here! You can play some toys on the top floor.
  • Very good. Not only shows toys from the past in glass cabinets but also has toys and games to play with as you go round. Quite nostalgic for some toys of my youth but there were also different toys from Germany. Lots of miniatures and dolls. Lots of many different construction toys. Lots for everyone.
  • Cheap, but small museum. Felt it was over too quickly. Needs more history, interactivity and videos on screen.
  • The museum does a fantastic job of pairing childhood toy interests over the years to the history of which its children belonged. Toys are but a representation of what a society strives for, or in the case of pre and post war Germany, availability of resources. Highly interactive and fun for all ages.
  • A museum worth visiting if you ever find yourselves in Nuremberg!! We read a lot of recommendations about it and decided to give it a try although we didn't have any children with us. Well we didn't regret it!! The collection is amazing and so well preserved!! This museum takes you back to your childhood years and more!! Good job!!
