  • It is a collection of toys Mexicans, most of which are wooden toys produced artesanamente. I do not recommend to go with children under 3 years because all want to touch and hold and in the Museum throughout is delicate anything can break at any said. The Museum is beautiful can be walked in no more than 1 hour. I recommend the terrace there is a beautiful view to the Centre of the city. The toy store is very limited and expensive, the truth could sell many more toys at best prices, I think which are very high and are toys you get in to the flea markets of crafts at best prices toys are not otherworldly.

  • 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.
