  • If you want to know the toys, made by Mexican craftsman's hand, come here. They are toys you play with them and you don't play you, as electronic toys. It also has a view of the incredible sunset on the 3rd floor. In the shop you find good prices and get a work of art. 1000% recommend

  • This is an incredible museum. It is easy to miss but very worth your time. Many amazing items from the past and present.  more »
  • The Museum of the toy is located a few blocks from the Center, is a place beautiful, magical, and a beautiful collection of toys. Each space has been done with incredible care. The collection has beautiful Mexican toys of all times, which according to the administrator, told me were preserved by the owner who kept their toys when you was a girl and then sought for several fairs to buy new toys to share with all. It is a must-see in San Miguel de Allende

  • 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.
