  • It has the majority of traditional toys collected in San Miguel. Air-conditioned, clean bathroom and a gift store. Nice.
  • Beautiful little museum. It takes about 30 mins to visit. The view on the rooftop is worth seeing. However the casher should smile a little more. She was too busy counting money to say goodbye when we left...
  • Pretty cool if your into the history of interested in the history of toy making in Mexico. My husband loved it, I thought it was cool, but I also don't appreciate the same way others would.
  • This extraordinary museum reveals Mexico's immense cultural heritage through their toys. The collection is breath taking.
  • 5 floors of delightful traditional toys, they are from all over the country. Make sure to bring your camera and a polarized lense if possible, most of the toys are behind glass so lots of reflections.
