  • “A flashback​ to childhood” This is truly a hidden gem. I'm glad I saw the signage and found it. Walked by it twice. The vast amount of toys could be spread out more but I understand about space. Also the vast amounts of toy guns is great. Allowed children to expand their imagination. The early toys to the radio & television shows that were the parts of your childhood. I highly recommend if you enjoyed toys as a child or you collect them as an adult.
  • Five floors full of old toys. Really interesting look into the past, and how toys were so diversified. Will be interesting for adults too, as well as younger adults to see the old version of the toys and cartoons we are familiar with. Price of $15 for adult ticket is slightly expensive though. Expect to spend about an hour here.
  • If you are a collector of vintage toys or are prone to bouts of nostalgia remembering back to your child hood you're bound to find something here which will make you smile. The museum is well laid out over 4 or 5 floors with descriptions of toys and other collectables along side their display cases to help provide prospective. I've been here twice now and enjoyed both times. Expect to spend about 90 mins looking around.
  • Incredible collection and incredible place. A hidden gem in the city. When I visited I was the only person 5 floors covering "space", "characters", "collectibles" and "childhood" among others. There's a cafe at the ground floor.
  • Cute little museum over 4 floors, filled with nostalgic memorabilia from the early 20th century. Perhaps more interesting for adults than young kids, as most of the displays are toys from the 1930s-1960s but it's a charming place to spend an hour. NB. The current 'Alien' pop-up exhibition is a bit lacklustre and not worthy of all the signage outside.
