  • They are currently under renovation and one floor was hut which meant you could not get in without climbing up a steel staircase and I have mobility issues. However, it is amazing! Lots of dolls...

  • Stunning collections beautifully displayed. Fine miniature room and shop settings. Incredibly cheap entry fee (and engaging staff at admission desk). Even if you can only spare an hour, go and visit!

  • Lovely place for kids and adults to spend a couple of hours... The play room in the top floor could extend your stay!
  • Very interesting Museum with beautiful pieces. I was hoping for more pieces in the temporary exhibition on racism in toys, but the exhibition itself was very touching and well curated.
  • Perfect place to visit for kids of all ages, 5 to 85. Truth be told, though, mostly for kids born before the millennium, as you will see games of your youth and of your parents, that younger children may not even understand.
  • I expected something bigger. Exhibition is quite small even though it's on third floors. And focuses mainly on old dolls and things connected to them. Price acceptable.
  • We were there today, due to corona a third of the musem is closed: the interactive parts, the dolls exhibition, the paintings on the stairs, and even the play area for the children is closed! They should either offer reduced price tickets or at least let you know before you pay your entry… such a bad experience for our children!
